Market Efficiency and Government Policies

Welcome to Week 3! Last module we introduced the supply and demand model to explain how free markets work. One of the main concepts we learned about free markets was that they tend to gravitate toward an “equilibrium” price and quantity. This module we will use the same conceptual model to answer one important question: Are free markets the best way to distribute society’s resources?...

This will be obvious to you when you read one of the discussion topics for this module: Should we legalize marijuana?...
