Economics is our drive, our struggle, our passion, our world.
Economics almost seems like magic. It’s part mathematics, part sociology, part psychology, and part clairvoyance. It’s people trying to predict future trends and human behavior in an ever changing world.
And it’s everywhere.
At Purchase, we want you to come away not thinking about big banks and Wall Street, but about scarcity, poverty, freedom, and equality. We want you to think about everyday lives, how they relate, and what we can do to improve them. Grow your critical thinking skills, make connections, and master the true universal language.
