Sophomore Economics Tutorial: Topics in the History of Economic Thought
CSS 220
Fall 2009
Section: 01  

Through an examination of a number of major works, this tutorial treats the development of economics since the time of Thomas Mun. The emergence of successive analytical systems--mercantilism, classical economics, Marxism, neoclassical economics, and Keynesianism--both reflect and help to illuminate the economic and social problems that constitute the Western experience over the past three centuries. Major economists we read include Smith, Ricardo, Ohlin, F. W. Taylor, Marx, Pigou, John Rae, Veblen, Keynes, and Schumpeter. This material will provide a fuller context for what you learn in politics, history, and social theory, and it will deepen your intuitive understanding of contemporary economic theory.
