Economics
This course introduces basic economic principles to help you better understand the world in which you live. In addition to learning how the U.S. economy works and how it sometimes fails, you will develop a deeper understanding of issues such as why college tuition costs are rising; how wages for workers in your chosen field are determined; whether the minimum wage should be increased; why some people argue for, and others against, an expansion of international trade; how to maximize profits if you someday start your own business; and how federal government and banking system policies affect your life and the overall economy.
