Description:
This course provides an introduction to the history of economic thought. Such ideas are important because they inform us about the present structure of economic analysis: what has been retained and also what has been unfortunately lost. But equally, they inform us about the present structure of world in which we live. The focus of this course will be on Smith, Ricardo, Marx, the early neoclassical economists, and Keynes. Additional discussions on Austrian economics and on mainstream contemporary economic thought will conclude the course.
