The study of economics is a battlefield. It always has been. Where wealth is involved, there is a lot of debate over who owns it, who ought to own it, and why.
The debate begins with an assertion: “This is mine. You may not use it without my permission.”
This is followed by four words, “Oh, yeah? Who says?”
This course will help students answer these two questions — and answer them forcefully.
