Prologue

Yes this is just subpart of BES164 (Sectors of Economy). I’ve given these two lectures different code (MiE/P*) because in future it’ll forkout as a separate playlist. Because BES16 (budget-Economic survey-2016) series may become redundant in the years to come, but Micro-economics theory will remain the same.

MiE/P1: Microeconomics- Type of Goods, Elasticity of Demand & Supply, Giffen, Veblen, Inferior Goods

  • Type of Goods: free goods, common woods, public goods, private goods, economic goods, club goods, artificially scarce goods- features, examples and MCQs
  • What is tragedy of commons?
  • Types of demands for economic goods: individual versus market. Ex Ante vs. Ex Post, Joint demand, Derived Demand, composite demand
  • Why is demand for a ‘factor of production’ is said to be a derived demand?
  • 3 types of demand elasticity
  • Positive cross elasticity in substitutes, Negative cross elasticity in complementary products, Zero cross elasticity

Giffen Goods

  • Price elasticity of demand: perfectly inelastic, perfectly elastic, unitary elastic
  • When demand curve shows “positive slope”: Veblen Goods, Giffen Goods, curfew and emergency situation
  • Income elasticity of Normal Goods
  • Giffen goods: understanding their demand slope and characteristics
  • Inferior goods and their demand curve
  • Laws of supply: understanding the difference between stock and supply; elasticity of supply

MiE/P2: Types of Market Structures, Marginal Utility Curve, Average cost, Capital Formation, Propensity to save

Microeconomics: Marginal Utility

  • Definition of market; Characteristics of various types of markets: Perfect competition, Monopoly, Monopolistic, Oligopoly, Monospony: number of participants, nature of product, knowledge -entry-exit norms, who is the price marker?
  • Price elasticity of demand during perfect competition
  • Price discrimination in monopoly, natural monopoly; MRTP and CCI acts
  • Economic cost, explicit vs implicit cost, normal profit, social cost, Total cost curve, average fixed cost curve
  • Long term Average cost curve- economies and dis-economies of scale, law of variable proportion
  • Economic cycle Recession, double dip recession
  • Marginal Utility, rate of substitution, indifference line, budget line
  • Propensity to consume, marginal propensity to save
  • Basic terms of Microeconomics: wants, desire, consumption, utility, production, consumption, wealth, capital formation, investment multiplier, production possibility curve.

Remaining lectures in BES16 series

Since some players are getting restless / worried- here is the answer to their question “how many videos / lectures left?”

Video Approx. length
BES164/P6: GDP, inflation from latest survey 0:30 minutes
BES165: Paris Summit, Rail budget, energy-communication infra. 3:30 minutes
BES166: HRD-2015, Census-2011 2:30 hrs
Total remaining duration 6:30 hrs

and that’ll be the end for this years’ BES-series.
