Inclusive Business Economy and Systems

This course provides students with a working knowledge of inclusive economic theory and its application to business. It explains how real business behavior deviates from textbook competitive economic theory and discusses the implications for public policy. Japanese and Chinese case studies help students appreciate why cultural factors cause real inclusive business behavior to vary significantly across economic systems. European Union, Japanese and Chinese economic performance are compared to assess their inclusive potential and merit. The course will also make it clear why most public economic policy is misleading.
