QMSS 75000 - Economics for Everyone
Thursdays, 6:30-8:30 PM, 3 Credits, Prof. Miles Corak (
This may, or it may not be, your first economics course, but it can reasonably be your last. “Economics for Everyone” is specially designed to meet the needs of students in all disciplines who may have had only limited exposure to economics. You will learn the fundamental vocabulary and grammar of a subject central to many public policy debates—the big issues ranging from globalization to climate change, from inequality to unemployment—but also the smaller concerns central to everyday life, like why does my cappuccino cost so much? Upon completion you will have the skills and knowledge to be a more informed and engaged citizen. Our study of the subject moves through three themes. The first examines the method and scope of economics, introducing some fundamental principles, and by appealing to some important historical examples illustrates how the definition and methods of the subject have evolved. The second focuses on the “theory of value,” the micro-economics of perfectly competitive markets to illustrate the efficiency of markets and how economists think about the role of public policy when markets “fail.” The third theme introduces national income accounting and macroeconomics, the revolution in thinking in the aftermath of the Great Depression of the 1930s, and how this remains useful in understanding the Great Recession of the last decade.
