ECO 150.  The Wealth and Poverty of Nations          3-0-3
This course introduces students to “big questions” surrounding wealth and poverty both internationally and domestically.  In doing so, the course examines both market and government mechanisms for the production and distribution of resources, as well as the complexity of the global economy and its implications for people of different countries and cultures.  Course coverage includes important components of the discussion of wealth and poverty, including economic growth, unemployment, inequality and income mobility, immigration, international trade, and sustainable development.
