Intro to Microeconomics (fall 2014)

Welcome to the Dickinson Blog page for Prof. Tynan’s Introduction to Microeconomics classes. This is where you will post news articles relating to topics covered in class. Each post should include a brief description of the news article, an explanation of how it connects to the course material, and a link to the article (or brief podcast or video).

The first article, “Can Elephants Survive a Legal Ivory Trade? Debate Is Shifting Against It” from National Geographic focuses on the renewed debate over banning or allowing a legal ivory trade. The article mentions the role of expectations  in influencing market prices, determinants of market demand and supply, and the relationship between different markets for ivory (produced/raw and legal/illegal).
