While most people think of economists as seers who try to predict the future of the stock market, government deficits, unemployment and similar areas, this is a far too parochial a view of what economists do. The really fascinating economists are engaged in the study of human behavior. The most fertile minds in economics today deal with observing the world and trying to understand it, not predict it. This course will explore how economics can be used to explain everyday behavior, in a myriad of real life situations. By discussing the work of the most influential and seminal minds in the economics profession, attendees will gain an appreciation for how the economist views the world and the power of their theories to explain why people behave the way they do and then be able to apply it to their approach to doing business.
