Imagine of these concepts (markets, elasticity, production, costs, market structures). Take one or two of those concepts and use it to examine and understand economic situations or decisions that you face in you're your company. If you can't apply these concepts to your workplace you may use current news items. I would like you to:
- Illustrate how the economic concepts give a framework for understanding the situations or decisions.
- Use economic concepts (goals, constraints, decision variables) to frame decision making (i.e. market structure will verify what decisions are available to a firm, such as a firm selling commodities largely has no control over price). This will contain understanding what decisions are available (what are the tradeoffs?) and how to use economic concepts to choose between available alternatives to make the most informed decision.
