Foundational knowledge of economics is a must. In our ever-changing world nothing screams louder than economics—from direct costs to potential opportunities, it's the fabric of our lives. Using humankind's biggest challenges like the climate crisis and technological innovation as a backdrop, this course will take a step back to critically analyze the history of capitalism, the intersection of technology and production, the rise of globalization, the widening gap between rich and poor, and the role of government and governance on the economy and its various systems. Readings will include Ha-Joon Chang's Economics: The User's Guide (Bloomsbury Press, 2014).
