Course Details


"The purpose of studying economics," said a famous economist, "is to avoid being deceived by economists." Most economic policy, from welfare reform to federal income taxation, is drafted and defended with the language of "microeconomic" logic. Microeconomics is about the person on the street, the family, Connie's Pizza, Bill Gates and monopoly, Enron and information, gangs and drugs, pollution and production, the Montgomery Bus Boycott, the "feminization of poverty," and the history of welfare reform. Also available through External Studies Program.
