This class, taught by Dr. Glenn Feldman, will cover various economic ideas from the ancient Greeks and Romans; through the early church fathers and medieval thought; through Adam Smith, Karl Marx, and the classical economists; upward to Keynes; and finally to Hayek, Milton Friedman, and recent supply-side and neoliberal fashions. It will not be highly mathematical, and there will be very few graphs.

Students need not be History majors to take the class. Graduate students of whatever discipline may also take the class by registering for it as HY 681: Directed Readings in History.
