Economics explains discrimination in the labour market
This course will give you a stimulating and insightful account of the ways in which economists have tried to understand what labour market discrimination is and what its sources are. Notice the reference to the ‘ways [plural] … economists have tried to understand’. The most basic message of this course is that economics is not a subject in which there is one single correct answer.
This course will also assist you in developing your ability to use and evaluate economic theory, and help you build or improve other academic skills. The evaluative skills developed will help you to begin to form a properly considered view about the merits of the alternative theoretical approaches.
