Title: Black Markets
Course Section Number: PPE-258-01
Department: Philosophy, Politics, Economic
Description: The issues this course addresses take place in the underground economy. The course will focus on different informal market sectors, namely the illicit markets for illegal drugs, alcohol in the 1920s, arms sales, the Soviet Union, and human trafficking. The objective is to apply economic reasoning to the analysis of the social issues surrounding these markets, drawing from principles of economics, and building on them, yet allowing the course to be interdisciplinary in nature, by allowing students to use their major areas of expertise in research.
