Debating Economics course is designed to introduce students to some of the most contentious issues in economics and economics policy. Roughly following the outline of Ha-Joon Chang’s “23 Things They Don’t Tell You About Capitalism” (and its rebuttal by libertarian-minded economist), the course will teach students how to reason and argue against an opponent or a prevailing policy view, and how to convince an audience. The course will enable students to understand, evaluate and develop economic arguments, to make use of data and economic reasoning in order to support a policy position, express their views in a clear and persuasive manner, both orally and in writing.
