Is climate change real? If so, to what extent? What are the factors causing it? And what are we willing to give up to stop it? This introductory course offers students a first touch in economics as an economist, not a student. Rather than consider hypothetical situations related to climate change, we will actually compute the empirical realities. In this course we will put economics in the context of how it analyzes and addresses real-world issues such as inequality, discrimination, and sustainability through the interplay of data and theory. While this course will be challenging, no prior knowledge of economics, statistics, or computer programming is assumed.
