A frequently heard complaint from students of economic theory goes something like this: "But it doesn't work like this in real life I" Unfortunately, it takes a long time of studying general cases to arrive at the realization that life itself is a special case of a general rule. During this course we will attempt to reconcile theory and practice: we will see how mental and emotional filters shape the choices people make individually and in groups.We will also try to understand what rational choice is, and you will conclude for yourself which rational patterns to follow (or not follow) in real life whenever you have to make a decision as a consumer or as a producer or even as a policymaker.
