ECON 3480 Economics of Film and Fiction
4 semester hours
Economics is everywhere. It's in business. It's in government. It's in our personal lives. This course utilizes contemporary and classic film and literature to illustrate fundamental concepts in economics through real-life illustration of economics. Classroom discussions and assignments are facilitated through a series of questions that explore economic theories in practice and their applications all around us. The course explores whether concepts are or are not presented correctly and the potential negative consequences of an erroneous presentation of economic concepts in film and fiction.
Prerequisite: ECON 1050 .
