Catalog Description : Each offering will build on modeling and reasoning techniques developed in the introductory-level courses (ECON 100 or 120). Topics depend on the instructor and will vary year-to-year. Topics include, but are not limited to, economics of the arts, financial economics, economics of sports, and economic history. May be repeated for credit if the topic is different.

Topic for Fall 2013: Labor Economics
Jobs and employment are perennially hot-button issues in any economics policy discussion. This course focuses on these issues by looking explicitly at labor markets. Topics include the determination of labor supply and labor demand, wage determination, unemployment, and the impact of technology on labor markets. The course will also address questions of wage inequality, the impact of human capital (is college “worth” the investment?), discrimination in hiring and wage decisions, and the impact of unions.


Topic for Winter 2014: Finance
Finance is an extension of the financial accounting course (ECON 170), and surveys a breadth of financial topics: financial management and value creation, assessing liquidity and operational efficiency, measuring cash flows, estimating cost of capital, designing a capital structure, valuing and acquiring a business, and operating internationally. Prerequisite for this class includes completion of ECON 170.


Topic for Spring 2014: Labor Economics
Jobs and employment are perennially hot-button issues in any economics policy discussion. This course focuses on these issues by looking explicitly at labor markets.
