ECO 315 - Economic Thought (3)

Prerequisite: ECO 203  with a C- or higher, or permission.
This course examines the development of economic ideas from ancient Greece to the modern era. Of particular interest is how various perspectives, both orthodox and heterodox, have contributed to the evolution of modern economic thought. It is also important to relate the emergence of economic ideas to the economic conditions prevailing at the time the ideas were developed. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to explain the significance of particular economic ideas to the development of economic theory and the broader implications of theory for the formulation of economic and social policy.
