Students explore how consumers make decisions about buying, selling, working, voting, smoking, drinking, dating, attending classes, breaking laws, going to the doctor and scores of other choices humans make every day. They look at why firms decide what to sell, how much to pollute, who to hire and how much to pay. They examine why governments tax and spend and what this does for (or to) their citizens. And lots more.
