student), Nathalie JANSON (PhD. Associate Professor), Aseem PATEL (PhD student). Course validation : The ﬁnal exam accounts for 1/3 of the ﬁnal grade ; a continuous assessment accounts for the remaining 2/3. The continuous assessment is computed as follows : 1/3 of the grade for the midterm exam (mid-semester exam common to all students) and the remaining 2/3 will be decided by the teaching assistant of the tutorial using 3 different evaluations (for instance : grading of the discussions of the problem sets, small quiz and MCQ, debates in class, reading notes). One of the 3 grades may be a tutorial participation grade. Course Description : The Economics course at the undergraduate level is an introduction to the main contemporaneous issues in economics. Its objectives are : to introduce the core concepts and the debates (both theoretical and empirical) that structure the discipline ; to introduce quantitative methods for students who want to deepen their knowledge of economics ; and to allow for a ﬁrst specialization in some topics. This course enables every student ; even those who do not want to pursue economic studies, to have a good understanding and intuition of economic mechanisms and a good knowledge of historical facts, political-economy debates, and economic institutions. We will show that economic reasoning enables to better understand the current debates and challenges facing our societies, including in their political and social dimension (e.g., globalization, development, inequalities, unemployment, crises, ﬁnance). The economics course also offers a rigorous theoretical toolbox for the analysis of recent empirical research. The lectures and tutorials are consistent with the Core Economics'' teaching project. Students are invited to register on the eBook platform that displays all the pedagogical material in an interactive form. The Moodle website of this course contains all the material, pedagogical tools and problem sets of the tutorials. The goal is to provide students with the empirical and conceptual knowledge that is necessary to understand the economy. We focus in particular on six important questions : 1. What are the main issues in economics ? How can we explain the wealth and poverty of nations and individuals ? 351
