The title of the course is ‘Economics: Theory & Applications’. The course defines various concepts of economics taking examples from our everyday life.
The course is divided into four sections. In the first section, definition of Economics and the difference between Microeconomics and Macroeconomics is discussed with appropriate examples. In the second section, the concept of production possibility frontier and its important uses in economics is explained with necessary illustrations.

With the help of the theory of demand and supply, in the final section, that is, in the last section, the operation of market mechanism and its application is presented. Discussion of the concepts like the Law of One Price, price ceiling, price flooring, etc., makes the section interesting and delighting.
