Economics of Crisis &Austerity

Spring 2020

Taught By: Anwar Shaikh

Section: A

CRN: 7697

Credits: 3

This course begins by considering the present state of the world at the global level. It moves on to consider how various schools of economic thought attempt to explain the structural patterns such as growth, cycles, crises, and unemployment. At the heart of any such enterprise is the following question: given that capitalism is a social system in which economic outcomes are rooted in a constantly evolving mixture of institutions and interests, how does it also manage to generate strong economic patterns that repeat over long periods of time? Guest lecturers will be invited to speak on various facets of the global crisis.
