Economics plays a central role in every aspect of society, primarily through the actions of governments at the federal, state, and local levels. This course will address a set of policy issues that revolve around economics, exploring their origins and associated underlying data. Rather than prescribing specific policy solutions, the course will focus on what the economics profession collectively understands to be true about each issue. There will be a special emphasis on the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
