Food Economics: Consumer Behavior

The goal of this course is to analyze the consumer side of food markers and related policy using tools of microeconomic analysis. In the first half of the course theoretical tools are developed, starting from individual choice and moving up to market demand. In the second part of the course, the focus shifts to applications of consumer economic theory in the food system, and how policies can alter consumer behavior.
