ECON 505: HISTORY OF ECONOMIC THOUGHT

This course is an introduction to the history of economic thought. It presumes students are acquainted with standard economic theory (basic macroeconomics and microeconomics). Students who have not have not had this background are strongly encouraged to form study groups and quickly work through any standard intro textbook. The course will trace the roots of standard theory, which lie in Classical Political Economy (the work of Smith, Ricardo, Malthus, Marx and Mill), as well as some more modern approaches to understanding how economies function (Marxian Political Economy, Keynesian Economics, Institutional Economics, Austrian Economics).
