ECN 263 - Economics in Context

4 Credits

In this course students study the basics of microeconomic and macroeconomic theory under the neoclassical model, including supply and demand, wage determination and monetary and fiscal policies. Students are challenged to situate the model in historical, social and ecological contexts, beyond what is typically considered in an introductory economics course. Students also explore empirical work that challenges the assumptions underlying the dominant theory.
