1. It is widely believed that standard neoclassical (supply and demand)
economics supports free-market conclusions, while behavioral economics
(game theory experiments, bounded rationality, Winner’s Curse, imperfect
information models, etc.) supports government intervention. Give two
counter-examples. Explain your reasoning.
2. Name one concept from this class that you believe will have the largest private
benefit to you as either a consumer or a businessperson and explain your
answer. Name and explain a concept from this course which you believe
would have the largest social benefit if it were widely understood. Finally, has
there been any concept discussed in class which you believe may be helpful

4. A puzzle: The relationship between education and earnings is wellestablished; people with higher levels of education earn higher incomes over
their lifetimes, much more. Now think about your own education, and be
honest: What percentage of the material covered in your college courses is
applicable to your current or intended career? For myself, I would say I use
around 30% of what I learned in my Econ Ph.D. program, and I am an
academic economist! If a high percentage (say, over 70%) of your education
applies to your career, then you are off the hook. If so, all you have to do is list
the topics covered in two recent courses and explain how you will or have
used them in your work (10-12 topics total would do it). If, like most people,
the percentage is fairly low, then offer an explanation of why it is that
education leads to higher earnings, if so little of it is relevant to one’s intended
