The Rhetoric Of Economics

Assists students in converting economics into a practical tool for supporting arguments in the public arena. Economics is usually learned in a sterile environment, in which the complexities of the political and physical world are absent. Many students have great difficulty in translating the academic models and theories of economics into tools which bridge the academic-practical gulf. Discussion and cases will include: the distinction between theory as a precise prediction and theory as a rule of thumb; the translation of economic ideas and concepts into comprehensible English; and the use of empirical evidence in non-technical environments.
