Course Description

This course is provided by South Central Public Health Partnership and will require a secondary login and/or registration.

 

Economics is the study of choices in a world of scarcity. In this course we explore how markets function by examining the demand behavior of consumers and the supply behavior of firms. We explore how market-based factors and governmental policies impact market outcomes. The concepts of private and social welfare are introduced as a framework for assessing the performance of markets. The course concludes with an application of economic tools to the policy issue of cigarette smoking. The course consists of eight separate modules, each of which is approximately 10 minutes in length. The material is quite general in nature, and is intended to improve the ability of preparedness professionals to project how markets will respond to significant public health events.
