    The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the theories and doctrines that constitute the main paradigms from which economists and policy makers approach the world. The course will cover the contribution of classical economists such as Adam Smith and his contemporaries which is today the theoretical reference point from which other theories have come to define themselves, either by opposing it (Marxian economics), by attempting to reform it (Georgism) or by re-adapting it (Neoclassical school).

    The purpose of this 5-session course is to offer a basic introduction to political economy in the tradition of Henry George as presented in his book Progress and Poverty.

    We will introduce the key concepts, axioms and fundamental laws of the discipline and use this understanding to analyze and explain economic issues in the real world. We will also examine the causes of poverty and discuss George’s unique approach to the problem. Additional issues such as the alternating cycles of boom and bust that are so characteristic of capitalist economies will be also discussed.
