Making sense of economics- Spring 2016

EconomicsEconomics is a fascinating subject which studies how societies use their limited resources to meet the wants and needs of their citizens. Economic forces impact upon all our lives every day; economics dominates the news and yet much of it remains a bit of a mystery. This introductory course seeks to demystify the forces that give us booms and busts, deficits and debts, riches and poverty.
