economics notes

4 March 2011

I've been TAing a few quarters now, and the more classes I TA the more section notes I type up; by no means am I a rockstar at explaining economics, but I'd like to think they've helped my students. Having searched the Internet and been generally frustrated with the available references to economic concepts and examples, I'll be posting everything here in hopes that it might do some good.

Most of these are in at least pseudo-draft form. If you catch any errors or want any further exposition, drop me a line in the comments or dig up my contact info on the about page (I'm more likely to respond to the latter). These will be maintained as works-in-progress.

Introduction to microeconomic theory (UCLA ECON11)

Statistics (UCLA ECON41)

Microeconomics/equilibrium (UCLA ECON101)

Market design (UCLA ECON106D)

Theory of the producer and consumer (UCLA ECON201A)

I had a concussion during this quarter and most of my notes are not very good. What follows is the one set that is worth anything, and it only on a practice-problem basis.

Microeconomics/auctions and marginal products (UCLA ECON201C)

Many of these notes refer to Essential Microeconomics, John Riley's textbook-in-progress. It's a good reference with a nice view towards applying questions to real-ish problems; this is of course opposed to MWG's proof-heavy book which, while mathematically powerful, is often devoid of any intuitive appeal.
