This course will engage you with some of the founding ideas of economics and their relevance to the social usefulness of modern economic science. The economic concepts considered in the course may include, for example, comparative advantage, institutions, money, and economic growth and development. For each of these concepts and topics, you will learn about how economists approached the problem throughout history, and how their approaches relate to other social science and business disciplines. You will actively reflect and debate about the discipline's objectives.

After this course, students will be able put economics into perspective: they will learn how modern-day problems are addressed in different subfields of modern economics, how these endeavours relate to the historical development of economics, and where the frontiers of economics as a discipline presently lie.
