Introduction to Economic Philosophy

Functioning economies existed for thousands of years before theorists began writing about the “dismal science” of economics. The science of wealth is still a very young discipline, only a few hundred years old. In this course we will be covering the development of this discipline, and gaining a better understanding of how people believe an economy functions.
