NOTICE: All students who took Midterm I (no matter how many points they scored) can take Midterm II. If they score a minimum of 50% of the points on both Midterm II and Final, respectively, then those students who had less than 50% of the points on Midterm I will be allowed to repeat Midterm I - but only on the first date of the exam (which is normally either end of January or beginning of February 2014). If these students have 50% or more points on the repeated Midterm I they will have passed the exam in Principles of Economics.

Results of the Midterm 1 can be seen at this link (the document is password protected - you got the password in class). An insight into the Midterm I is 14/11/2013 from 12.15-13 hours as well as 15/11/2013 from 11.10-11.40 in the room 318.

Welcome, BDIB students!
At this link you can find the current syllabus.Handouts for seminars will be available for download at this website, and will be uploaded regularly after the seminars have taken place.

Some of you have asked me what you should be paying attention to when preparing for the exam. While guidance for preparing for the exam will be given in the course of the semester, you can take a look into the course contents here (http://www.efzg.unizg.hr/default.aspx?id=16211).

Although the 19th edition of the texbook Economics (Samuelson/Nordhaus) is required, 18th edition is also OK. However, you should note there are some differences between the 18th and the 19th edition of Samuelson/Nordhaus Economics:
- minor changes to the 10th chapter
- 14th ch from the 18th edition has been somewhat shortened and incorporated into the 15th ch; there's a new 14th chapter in the 19th edition (under the heading "Land, Natural Resources, and the Environment"); Appendix 14 (18th ed) has been thrown out of the 19th ed
- multipliere theory has been incorporated into the 22nd ch of the 19th ed, under the heading "Business Cycles and Aggregate Demand"
- introduction into schools of economic thought can, in the 19th edition, be found predominantly in chapters 29 and 31
