Course Title: Revisiting Two Schools of Economics: Free Market Economics vs Structuralist Economics
Instructor: Dr. José López-González (KSAS '92)
Brought to you by Odyssey
June 07, 2023 - July 12, 2023 (6 Sessions)
Wednesday, 6:30 PM ET
Virtual via Zoom
We will analyze the economic policies of the previous and current US administrations under the frameworks and standards of two contemporary Schools of Economics describing & explaining the world of economic reality: Free Market Economics claims to be the most efficient way for an economy to achieve a high rate of long-term economic growth, offering the greatest opportunities for economic agents to exercise their free human capacities. Structuralist/Keynesian Economics claims that the current capitalist economy includes the influence of structural social relations and assumes the work of a democratic State to aim for a more egalitarian, full-employment and sustainable economy. The core of the analysis is to understand the continuous adversarial relationship that exists between Capitalism and Democracy.
