ECO 123 - Values, Norms, and Economic Justice

Course Units: 1.0
(TBD: Staff) This class considers the goals economic policy might pursue and how different theories of the good lead to particular choices about desirable or undesirable economic policies. We consider mainstream economic thinking, which has roots in utilitarianism and liberalism, and alternative ideas such as libertarianism, Austrian economics, feminist, communitarian, and religious philosophy and economics. We apply these ideas to relevant policy issues, such as free trade, globalization, unemployment, income distribution, affirmative action, care of the environment, health care, and famine relief. Cross-Listed: PHL 123    CC: HUM, SOCS, JSPE Note: ECO 101  is not a prerequisite for ECO 123.
