This unit introduces students to the principles essential for understanding fundamental economic problems, and helps to explain the policy alternatives that Australian society may use to cope with these problems in an international context. This aspect of economics deals with the principles that apply to the analysis of the behaviour of individual consumers and businesses in the economy.
