Course Details

A foundational understanding of economics is important for anyone who needs to make good decisions and make sense of the world. This course explores key concepts in microeconomics, macroeconomics and behavioral economics, and introduces several new economic models, such as the sharing economy and the economics of "free". Throughout the course, participants will come to better understand how people and organizations make decisions, the global economic situation, why currencies fluctuate, the effectiveness of government stimulus packages, and whether or not people make rational decisions.
This course is light on theory and graphs and heavy on interaction and discussion-based course work, with supporting lecture and some readings. Those who are aware of economic forces but who have not formally studied economics and would like to better understand how these forces affect their life and work would benefit from this course.
