Big New Ideas in Economics From Some Big Thinkers    NEW!

In the last several years, we have seen a number of challenging new books and articles on economics asking serious questions about the status of our economy today and offering dramatic suggestions for change. The issues they raise, such as inequality, basic healthcare, and global warming, are the subjects of great debate in the press and in Congress. This course will be designed to help participants to develop a more informed opinions on these subjects. Advance reading for each class will be 3-4 pages of extracted ideas from a selected book as well as a set of questions that will be the basis for our class discussion. The objective of these discussion sessions is not to find consensus, but rather to learn from each other.
