ECN 384 - Seminar in the Economics of Education

4 credits
Education becomes increasingly important as the “information economy” replaces the old industrial economy. This course explores some questions that are global, others that are personal: is better education the solution to poverty? Is investment in human capital the key to a nation’s development? Can vouchers improve public schools? Is a Grinnell education a better investment than putting those thousands of tuition dollars into the stock market? Should you go to law school?

Prerequisite: ECN 280  and ECN 282 . Prerequisite or co-requisite: ECN 286 MAT 336 , or STA 336 .
Note: Not offered every year.
