New Course Supplement 2016

ECON 17 Technological Progress and the Entrepreneurial Economy

The course examines technological invention and innovation and the path of technological progress and economic growth.  Readings and discussion will develop understanding of the relation of new technology to science and cultural evolution and will describe the roles played, within economic and political systems, by inventors, entrepreneurs, companies, and finance when, from needs and opportunities, technologies emerge as creative new combinations. 

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.
