ECON 323 Classical and Marxian Political Economy


The writings of Adam Smith and of Karl Marx had a profound and lasting influence on the way people think about the world. The
Industrial Revolution that took place in the interim between the publications of the works of these two thinkers literally changed the
world. This course focuses on the most important works of Smith and Marx and on the economic events taking place in eighteenth and
nineteenth century England that continue to affect the way we think and live. The works of other Classical Economists are also
examined. (Course offered in alternate years.)
