Food Economics: Firm Strategic Behavior

The course provides students with an intermediate level understanding of the microeconomics of firm or business behavior, and to apply these tools to current policy issues in the food system. Students explore the effect of firm decision-making on size, scale, and scope, and apply the tools to firms in the food sector. A range of outcomes is explored: free market, firm self regulation, socially responsible firm behavior, shared value firm behavior, and government regulation. The course is designed for policy and food interested students with little as well as no background in economics, or for those who have completed an introductory course that used a text on par with Krugman and Wells.
