This semester there will be an economics student forum on alternative schools of economic thought with an information session of its own too! Come to PAC107 on Monday night to get information on assignments/applications/enrollment forms. Feel free to e-mail aatamanchuk[at]wesleyan[dot]edu if you can’t make it but are interested.Course Description:
Many students of economics believe they have a strong handle on basic economic theory, but what happens when we move beyond the neoclassical and Keynesian frameworks we have been taught in classes such as ECON101-302? What conclusions should we reach if we work through the problems raised in these classes guided by Marxian, Austrian, or neo-Ricardian economic theory? This course will examine the issues, methods and concerns of these alternative schools of economic thought, comparing their arguments and conclusions to those of contemporary mainstream theory.
Time: 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Place: PAC 107
