Economics profoundly affects our everyday lives. We seek a better understanding but without a background in economics, many of us are left confused or misunderstand how and why many issues play out as they do.

This class will study 12 basic economic principles and then each week seek to apply them to a current real world situation for a greater understanding. Our weekly discussion topics will be the hot issues of the day. Each class will involve a lively debate based on facts and basic economic principles to lay the groundwork to help each person work toward their own understandings. To facilitate that discussion classmates will be given several reading assignments to be completed before each class. There is no obligation to attend each weekly class. You can choose those topics of most interest to you.

The class does not preach any particular point of view but is aimed at helping you think independently as opposed to simply accepting popular viewpoints expressed by the media.
