    Throughout human history the vast preponderance of the population lived in abject poverty with a lifespan of less than 40 years. The past two and a half centuries have witnessed a doubling of life expectancy and an enormous increase of material comfort. This course will study how economists endeavor to account for this enormous change. Students will discuss through the term, How the World Became Rich by Koyama, Mark and Rubin, Jared. (Polity 2022).

We will use a publicly traded corporation of the class' choice as our primary model. Weekly syllabus: 1) overview of accounting and annual reports 2) Balance Sheet 3) Income Statement 4) Cash Flows. Last year's class said everyone could benefit from this course.
