Change permeates all aspects of human life. It can be continuous and predictable or sudden and brutal. We strive to make it happen or it happens to us, and we fear it. The course will explore how we and our economic and social institutions deal with change: the process of economic growth and development, the limits to growth, market bubbles and crashes, the evolution of an economy with ever-changing patterns of consumption, occupations, and income. This is a seminar course, so students are expected to bring plenty of curiosity and a lively imagination. In addition to class discussions of selected readings, we will have one homework assignment each week, and a research project.
