Graduate Lecturer, George Mason University
Economic Problems and Public Policies (ECON 309) Summer 2020

Are foreigners stealing our jobs? How much should we trust the government? Who benefits from a pandemic? The answers to these questions can be found in public policy. The goal for this course is to take what you have learned in your economic principles courses and combine them to analyze problems and current events happening around you. We will use the“economic way of thinking” to evaluate public policy issues.

 

Graduate Lecturer, George Mason University
Economies of Developing Areas (ECON 360) Summer 2019

Do you know that a poor woman in a remote village in Kenya can have an impact on your livelihood? Today the world is interconnected and choices that people make can affect us even if indirectly. Rising inequality among the rich and the poor is harmful to economic growth and weakens social cohesion, thus increasing political and social tensions and in some circumstances, driving instability and conflict. This course investigates why some countries are rich and others are poor. You will be acquainted with different answers that have been offered by economists over the years to solve this puzzling question.
