Does economics need a rethink?
Economics needs a rethink. Our national debate isn’t on a pathway to solutions. It’s on a pendulum… back and forth: Do we have more government or less government? More or fewer social services? Raise or lower taxes? These arguments don’t end. Why does economics need a rethink? Because we’re having the wrong arguments.
This class will ask: could better ideas about what passes for economic fundamentals make capitalism more fair in its outcomes and less needy of government intervention?
The instructor, Stephen Taft, has worked for decades on Wall Street managing others peoples’ money. Over that time, he delved into economic studies to help him cut through the chatter that drives many investment choices. What he found there is a misbegotten justice and will share his findings with you.
