5. The New Economics of the Business Cycle

Upheavals in how the U.S. economy operates have transformed Americans from wealth creators to creative borrowers. This course looks at how abandoning the gold standard, a bulwark of the world economy since the Industrial Revolution, has helped replace capital accumulation and investment with credit-fueled consumption. Will this revolutionary shift usher in a new era of growth or lead to yet another wave of cyclical depressions? Using Richard Duncan’s book The New Depression as main reference, this five-lesson course will highlight structural changes to the U.S. economy since the demise of the World War II-spawned financial order, also known as Bretton Woods.

6. History of Economics and Economic Thought

This course introduces students to the ideas of great economists. Those ideas shape how economists think today, and determine how policy is made worldwide.

The course starts with the contributions of classical economists such as Adam Smith and his contemporaries. All modern economic theories measure themselves against that classical yardstick. Think of it as a debate, with some thinkers opposing classical economics (Marxian economics) while others try to reform it (Georgism) or re-adapt it to modern circumstances (Neoclassical school).
