This course cannot be used to fulfill PhD requirements.
The goals of this course are twofold. The first goal is to acquaint students with the foundational literature in Mainline Economics. Mainline Economics identifies that modern economic literature that continues analysis in the rich tradition of Adam Smith. In this course we will evaluate how Austrian Economics, Public Choice Theory, and Institutional Analysis extend Smith’s critical insights to better understand modern policy dilemmas. The second goal is to learn what goes into the design of a feasible policy analysis grounded in this literature, from the identification of an appropriate research question to the review of relevant literature and the development of a plan for further research.
