*First Year Course only* This class provides a foundation in economic theory and addresses many major topics in economics. We will discuss and apply economic theory to behavioral and policy questions and develop tools needed to critically evaluate international events and policies. The goal of this class is that you, the student, be introduced to a wide range of economic theory and be able to approach policy decisions with the tools and information necessary to make good decisions. This class uses examples from Latin America and supports the Latin American Studies program.

ECON 119-06  Principles of Economics
TR 08:00 am-09:30 am CARN 06A Amy Damon
*First Year Course only* This course is an introduction to economic concepts and basic economic theory. The course is split between the study of microeconomics, which focuses on the decision making of individual consumers and firms and macroeconomics with focuses on aggregate level economic questions such as interest rates and government spending, among others. In this course we will develop economic tools to analyze and evaluate public policies, poverty and welfare questions, and other applied topics.

ECON 294-01  Climate Change: Science, Economics, and Policy
TR 09:40 am-11:10 am OLRI 301 Bradtmiller, West
*Cross-listed with ENVI 294-01; first day attendance required; ACTC students may register on the first day of class with the permission of the instructor* Students registering for the course as ECON 294 will receive credit toward the general distribution requirement in social sciences; those registering for ENVI 294 will receive credit towards the natural science requirement. This team-taught course will introduce students to models that integrate the science of climate change with the economic determinants and effects of climate change and analysis of policies that might be used to address the problem. It will contain six modules. First we will study climate change science, including the greenhouse effect, the carbon cycle, the climate system, and feedbacks that amplify or dampen changes to these systems. Second, we will cover topics from environmental economics, including market efficiency, externalities, public goods, growth, and discounting, specifically as they apply to climate change. Next, we will explore models used for understanding and predicting climate, including basic 1 and 2-dimensional models as well as more complex 3D models and Global Circulation Models (GCMs). The module will then combine these topics in an exploration of what impacts, natural and economic, are predicted by climate models for the near (100 year) future. Fourth, we will explore policy interventions for the reduction in greenhouse gases, including carbon taxes and cap and trade, and other regulation such as that taking place under the U.S. Clean Air Act. Where relevant we will discuss the successes and failures of these systems as they have been applied to date. We will also discuss the costs and benefits of subsidizing renewable energy and carbon-free energy sources and the costs of negative impacts of climate change on human and natural systems. Fifth, we will discuss the wide array of technological solutions that have been proposed to slow, stop or even reverse climate change. These range from things that are now common (wind turbines) to things that are gaining in popularity (geothermal) to the truly esoteric (mirrors in space). The final module will show how the preceding topics factor into Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs). Governments and NGOs use these models to combine scientific and socioeconomic information in order to predict the outcomes of various climate and policy scenarios. These are the state of the art in climate science, economics and policy; students will be exposed to several of the most commonly used models and to research from their critics.

While the course will have substantial quantitative content, its only prerequisite is ECON 119: Principles of Economics, and we hope to attract a diverse group of students of varying academic and personal experience.
