Cíle předmětu (anotace)

The objective of the course is to provide a complex theoretical basis for applied economics disciplines and to both deepen and expand students´ knowledge acquired in the first year of their studies within the course of Microeconomics I.
The first part of the course is aimed at the presentation of a consumer´s decison-making and the theory of production in the short-run and the long-run. The second part is focused on various market structures with differing rates of competitiveness. The third part of the course introduces students to the functioning of factor markets, while the final part deals with the general equlibrium theory, economics of information and welfare economics. Compared to the bachelor´s course on microeconomics, this course is more formalized and addresses also some issues of non-orthodox microeconomic approaches.

Předpoklady - další informace k podmíněnosti studia předmětu

The course of Microeconomics I (MIEI) is a prerequisite for the course of Microeconomics II (MIE2N).

Získané způsobilosti

Students understand the basic principles of rational behaviour of different types of economic agents (households, firms, government). They are able to analyze the results of this behaviour and comprehend the functioning of various types of interacting markets. From a practical point of view, students are able to compute the optimum quantities of consumed and produced goods in order to maximize a criterion function of both the consumers and producers. Also, they are able to estimate the influence of the demand elasticity upon a firm´s total revenues and determinate the optimum quantities of factors of production entering the production process.
