Why are Apple products so expensive? What are the effects of monopolies in the real world? How do companies determine how much of their good to produce?

We will read articles, listen to podcasts, and watch videos that will give you a better understanding of how the concepts covered are applied in real life. Some specific topics we will cover include: - Opportunity cost - Accounting versus economic profit - Supply and demand - Elasticity - Gross domestic product - Money, stocks, and bonds - Inflation - Banks and the creation of money
