Special Topics Offered 2016:

Economics 3395B - Entrepreneurship

The course studies the occupational and financial choices of entrepreneurs, as well as the original decision to become an entrepreneur and analyzes the impacts of policies related to entrepreneurship.  Sample questions that are addressed include: Which individuals choose to become entrepreneurs? Why do some self-finance their enterprises and others use financial intermediaries? How does the tax system affect the level of investment,  growth of enterprise, and wealth accumulation of entrepreneurs.

Economics 3396B - Family

In this course we will study various economic theories of household behaviour and examine how they can be used to understand economic/social issues around the world. We will consider various theories of family formation and decision making, looking at how households form and how they make fertility, investment (human capital and physical capital), and labour supply decisions. We will use these models to account for trends over time and across countries and groups. Lastly, we will evaluate the effects of various governmental policies that affect fertility and family formation within these frameworks.
