DPI-235

DPI-235 investigates the intersection of political morality and economic policy. Recent worldwide attention on wealth and income inequality has sparked renewed interest in thinking seriously about what economic justice demands. This course provides students with an opportunity to tackle this issue head-on and to explore it with rigor and sophistication. Our discussions will wed empirical findings with theory, always with an eye toward policy implications.
