The economy can be understood in many different ways. The course examines alternative paradigms in economics, and considers how they analyse the economy. This enables different interpretations of recent events. We will consider various schools of thought such as the Post-Keynesians, Institutionalists, Marxist or Austrians schools. Topics include how prices are determined, labour markets, money and finance with a strong emphasis on economic policy.
