Spring 2015 - Economics 180 - Directed Reading in Economics

Time: Tuesdays, 3 - 5:45 pm

Location: TBD


A maximum of 12 students will closely analyze a particular, important economic reading and use supplemental readings to support a position on a controversial economic topic in a public debate. All readings must be approved by the instructor. Students will receive support in both the readings and debate techniques. Both depth of knowledge and practical use of this knowledge in debate are important for successful completion of this class. This is a credit/no credit course.
