Graduate Labor Economics II

Spring 2020

Taught By: William Rodgers

Section: A

CRN: 7345

Credits: 3

The course will critically examine economic approaches and thought with regards to understanding persistent group-based inequality. The course will include theoretical and empirical approaches that examine, challenges and expands the conventional “orthodox” economic view of group-based inequality. The course will look beyond individual optimizations to fuses insights from multiple social sciences to examine identity formation and collective group actions and processes as they relate to social hierarchy, and economic outcomes and distributions. The domains of intergroup disparity include class, race, ethnicity, nativity, tribal affiliation, religion, gender and phenotype. The field examines the interplay between members of social groups animated by their collective self-interest to attain or maintain relative group position in a social hierarchy in both domestic and international contexts.
