Course Detail
Course Components:
Economic models and analyses can be applied to areas of human behavior beyond the buying and selling of legal goods. This course applies economic insights to human behavior in the areas of interpersonal relationships (including sex), the use of drugs (including illegal drugs), and crime. An important component of the course is the consideration of which kinds of economic models are most useful for understanding these behaviors and in what ways economic analysis can fall short in enhancing our understanding of these issues.
