It is the foundation of this course as students learn how decisions about the four factors of production--land, labor, capital, and entrepreneurship--are made. Key topics covered include: law of supply and demand; saving, borrowing, and spending; the Federal Reserve System and the money supply; and the role of government in an open market economy.
