Course Description

ONLINE: Economics plays a central role in the functioning of every aspect of society. This course will address a set of prominent policy issues that have economics at their core. We will explore their origins as policy matters, the underlying data and evidence, and what policy levers are available to deal with them. Lectures will be stand-alone, taught by subject matter experts — likely a different speaker each week — all of whom have a Ph.D. in economics. Potential topics include climate change, health care economics and economic inequality. The topics presented will be determined by what is most topical at the time of the course. It is hoped that students will gain a better understanding of how economists think about important economic policy issues as well as a deeper understanding of the particular subjects studied. | Lecture + Q&A.
