Sophomore Economics Tutorial: Topics in the History of Economic Thought
CSS 220
Fall 2011
Section: 01  

Through an examination of several 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. Our readings include Smith, Ricardo, Ohlin, F. W. Taylor, Marx, Pigou, John Rae, Veblen, Keynes, and Schumpeter. The material provides a fuller context for what you learn in politics, history, and social theory, and it will deepen your intuitive understanding of contemporary economic theory.
