ECON 330 - Urban Growth and Development

(3)
An introduction to the forces behind the economic growth and development of urban areas around the world. The class examines how economists measure the quality of life of urban areas and what the likely economic features of city and suburban life will be in the coming decades. Students critique urban economic policies by examining how they affect resilience, sustainability, and prosperity. Students also explore to what extent Christians might affirm or object to the way in which urban economic forces and public policies generate economic growth, affect ecological systems, and distribute goods and services across race, social class, and future generations. Prerequisites: ECON 151, or ECON 221 and ECON 222, or ECON 232, or permission of the instructor. Not offered 2020-2021.
