Teaching Summary

BCPM0068: Economics II. 
The aim of this module is to introduce the basics of statistical methods as a foundation on which to explore the world of finance. By the end of the unit, students can expect they will be aware of the main forms of finance used by the various types of businesses in the construction industry.

BCPM0002: The Economic Institutions of the Construction Industry.
This module is in two main parts. Part (A) introduces students to the methods and concepts of modern microeconomics that can be effectively used to analyse the basic economic institutions, structure and relationships of construction. The perspective is that of decision-makers in a firms, facing constraints imposed by specific forms of competitions and market context. In part (B) we introduce the key ideas of macro-economics and use them to develop an understanding of the factors affecting the aggregate level of demand for construction firms within the contracting system and its constituent markets.
