Economics of Discrimination
ECON 233
Spring 2024
Section: 01  

This is an applied economics course that introduces students to intuitions and concepts relating to race and gender discrimination in the labor market. It will provide an overview of the historical context, important economic models, and empirical research on this issue. While we will not delve into intensive analyses of the techniques used in these papers, we will discuss and present the findings and implications. The exams and assignments will focus on being able to explain the causes and consequences of gender and racial disparities and discuss the possible impacts of hypothetical polices.
