The economics minor combines the most current economic thinking in the areas of market-based solutions, game theory, behavioral finance, free/fair international trade, the fine arts, and a conversational foreign language. Students will gain a strong foundation in writing, speaking, and quantitative reasoning, and the fine arts. Economics students will analyze the choices between regulatory versus market-based solutions to climate change; which economic policies will best alleviate poverty and reduce income inequality; the secret behind the success of micro financing; and many other ideas. Economics students develop the necessary analytical tools to understand contemporary issues and to take reasoned positions in debates about economic and social policy such as unemployment, inflation, poverty, inequality, discrimination, underdevelopment, and environmental destruction.
