ECON 132 Introduction to Economic Inquiry (4)

This course introduces students to economic inquiry. We will address questions such as: What kinds of questions do economists ask? How do they go about trying to answer those questions? Why do economists disagree with one another? and How does this conversation connect to current public discourse? Drawing on the work of important figures in the history of economic thought, students will encounter the arguments of two major approaches to economic analysis as developed by E. K. Hunt in History of Economic Thought: A Critical Perspective.
