Law 108: Economic Foundations of Legal Studies
This course is designed to familiarize students with the fundamentals of microeconomic theory. The central focus this course takes is an understanding of the process of price formation in a free exchange economy. We rigorously examine the various legal rules and economic incentives that operate within the constitutional free enterprise system. Market institutions such as: the firm, advertising, profit-loss mechanism, futures speculation, and property rights are explored for their role in the coordination of economic activity. Finally these principles are applied to the larger issues of economic regulation, environmental quality, and the “political marketplace” of representative democracy.
