ECON 009. Creativity and Economics
The creation of new products, from movies and paintings to computers and the human genome has become increasingly central to the US economy. In this course, we seek to deepen our understanding of the creative act, its economic causes and consequences, and of economic theory as it has changed in reaction to the increased economic importance of creativity. Students write a short paper about a specific new product or line of products, using the economic ideas developed in the class.
