ECON 1000 - The Economics of Global Issues (CZ)


(3) Credit Hours

We will try to gain a better understanding of global and national issues faced by individuals and society, by looking at past as well as current events and debates that have been shaping our future. Why do some economies grow, while others stagnate? Can wealth and fairness coexist? How and why do markets work and when do they occasionally fail? What can we do about climate change? We will also try to understand, appreciate, but also be critical of the regulatory work of governments, both here and abroad. The purpose of this course is to expose students to various ideas and debates in our quest to make sense of these difficult and open-ended questions confronting humankind. Fall and Spring semesters. Differential course fee will be assessed.
