Lecture Notes of Economics 380

These notes are supposed to reduce your burden of note-taking so that you can concentrate on listening to the lectures. They are highlights of what I will go through in the lectures, but I typically cover more. You are encouraged to review these notes before class, and come to the lectures with questions and observations.

The notes are organized around topics. They may not correspond to the actual lecture schedule.
