This interdisciplinary course provides an overview of some core conceptual tools used to analyze issues at the intersection of philosophy, politics, and economics (PPE). It also serves as the Gateway course for the PPE certificate program at Duke and the PPE minor at UNC. Topics covered will include the moral status of markets, distributive justice, liberty and paternalism, and the use of economic models to understand the behavior of voters and policymakers.
This course is cross-listed with POLI and ECON 384, and is for declared PPE minors only. To declare the PPE minor, please contact your academic advisor for assistance.
