This unit is about the behaviour of consumers and producers and their interaction in the marketplace. The study of how markets operate is essential to understanding any form of economic behaviour in the global arena. The tools of market analysis developed in the unit provide the foundation for an understanding of issues such as coordinating people's needs with the world's limited resources, corporate pricing strategies, monopoly power, government regulation, the environment, income inequality, the economic relationships between countries and foreign trade.
