導論

本課程在於說明由資源稀少性所引申出對選擇的需求。資源稀少的事實使得個人、企業跟社會必須去選擇在其有限資源中之不同的運用模式(或配置)。在此同時,由不同之經濟動機所做成的多種選擇必須相互一致。例如,一個產業領域在增加勞力及資本之運用後所伴隨而來的擴張,只有在縮減其他產業的情況下才有可能發生。市場是一個達成此種調和的機制。我門在本課程的第一部份去了解經濟學家如何建構個別消費者及企業選擇過程之模式,以及市場如何運作以協調這些選擇。我們也檢視市場如何透過經濟學家之市場效率準則以有效的執行上述此項功能。

Introduction

The course addresses the need for choice implied by the scarcity of resources. The fact of scarcity necessitates that individuals, firms, and societies choose among alternative uses – or allocations – of its limited resources. At the same time, the various choices made by different economic agents must be mutually consistent. For example, the expansion of one sector accompanied by that sector's increased use of labor and capital is only possible if accompanied by a net contraction in other industries. Markets are a mechanism to achieve such reconciliation. In this first part of the class we seek to understand how economists model the choice process of individual consumers and firms, and how markets work to coordinate these choices. We also examine how well markets perform this function using the economist's criterion of market efficiency.
