Issues in Contemporary Economics

Section 64840

  • Note: This thematic affords students an opportunity to improve their writing and critical reasoning abilities within the context of current economic issues. Together we will employ sound discourse practices to analyze questions posed by the interplay of economic, social, and political circumstances, such as the growing divide between rich and poor, the effects of globalized markets, and the pace of technological change. Students will engage in formal writing projects and ancillary writing assignments designed to cultivate their appreciation of writing as an essential process --of thinking, of learning, of remembering, of inquiring, of persuading within the academic discourse community.
