Economics Discovery Course
Course Description: Should we trade more with China? Why are some countries poor, and some countries rich? Why are the 1% getting richer? Should the U.S. have universal health insurance? How can you fix failing schools? What should we do to prevent the next Great Recession? Economics shows you how to think about some of the toughest problems facing society -- and how to use data to get some answers. This exploratory course will feature a series of lectures by MIT's economics faculty, showing how their cutting-edge research can help you answer these questions and more.
