PHIL 1.03 Philosophy and Economics

What makes an economic system fair or unfair?  What does it mean to be economically rational?  How should we evaluate public policy?  How do we know when things go better or worse for a person?  This course will explore a range of fundamental issues in ethics and political philosophy that have deep implications for economic analysis including distributive justice, well-being, and rationality.  It will also examine philosophical perspectives on economic efficiency and social choice theory.



Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
