History of Economic Thought - ECN 327

Students study the origins and development of economic thought starting with Adam Smith. The course relates history to the present and looks at the contribution of different economists and schools of thought including, for example, the classical school, the neoclassical school, Marxism, Keynesianism, and marginalism. The course is not a pure course in history, as it uses the past to understand the present and hopefully forecast the future. Prerequisites: ECN 211, ECN 212.
