ECON 522 Economic Thinking for Managers

To manage effectively requires an understanding of economics and the role of economics in business. As Christians, our role as business leaders is to understand the principles of economics and how we might help those less fortunate than ourselves. Economists argue as to the road to be taken to lessen the effects of poverty, arguing for or against capitalism, free market, socialism, communism and mixed economies, as well as many other economic forms. This course examines economic approaches to alleviating poverty throughout the world. Students are encouraged to think critically about the role of government, morals, ethics and freedom in economics for this course.
