Spring 2015 - Economics 158 - The Economics of Entrepreneurship

Time: Tuesdays, 6:00 - 8:45 pm

Location: Dudley Moorehead Hall 358


This course examines how economists have approached the phenomenon of entrepreneurship, from its behavioral foundations to its effects on economic growth and progress. It explores the role of entrepreneurship in theory and policy, and emphasizes its cultural, legal, and political determinants. This is not a “how to”, but rather a “what is” analysis.
