You will do this by critically engaging with economic theory which will deepen your knowledge of different schools of economic thought introduced to you in ECOP1001. This critical engagement will enable you to evaluate the fundamental economic features of capitalism such as: the role of markets in social provisioning and capital accumulation; class and inequality; the workings of money and finance; the nexus between unemployment and inflation; the tension between economic growth and the environment; and innovation and technological change.
