10:00 AM Making Sense of Current Economical Issues – Evergreen Forum (SPB)

February 27, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

MAKING SENSE OF CURRENT ECONOMICAL ISSUES

LEADER: Stephen Friedlander has a PhD in economics, taught at Towson State University, and worked in regulatory policy matters at AT&T, from which he retired.
WEDNESDAYS: 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon, 8 weeks: February 27 through April 17
LOCATION: PSRC

Much of today’s news involves economic issues. This course will use lectures, class discussion, and video clips to make sense of various past and current issues. Starting with basic supply and demand theory and commonly used economic statistics, we’ll examine various policy issues like government price controls, regulation and cartelized industries, foreign trade and tariffs, taxation with emphasis on income taxes, product pricing and its implications for consumers, and possibly other items that appear in the news. The course is appropriate for students of all levels of economic sophistication, though some familiarity with economic and financial concepts may be helpful.
