The lecture focuses on the sources of market failures and the situations where equilibrium fails to satisfy Pareto efficiency.

ECON 617 History of Economic Theories
This course surveys the main schools in the history of the development of economic thought, beginning with the Classical school and the works of Smith, Ricardo, J.S. Mill, Thornton, Say, and others. It then reviews challenges to the classical school by Marx, Marginalists, and subsequent key figures like Marshall, Walras and the Neoclassicalists. Economic thought associated with the early 20th century transitionalists are briefly addressed, including economists such as Wicksell, Schumpeter, Fisher, and others. Selective chapters and passages of Keynes’s General Theory are read in depth, focusing in particular on Keynes in areas of investment, interest rate theory and money demand. Post-1945 revisions of Keynes and Neoclassical economics in the form of early and late IS/LM analysis are reviewed, and its main challenges by Friedman (Monetarism), Lucas (Rational Expectations), Real Business Cycle theorists, and Post-Keynesian thought (UK and US). The course concludes with a consideration of efficient markets theory and the views of its critics such as Tobin, Hyman Minsky, Shiller, and others. Throughout the course, economic theories will be examined in light of the interrelationships between theory, policies and conditions
ECON 616 Contemporary Approaches on Methodology in Economics
The course starts with a brief introduction to philosophy concentrating on key epistemological concepts introduced by Hume and Kant. This is followed by a topical survey of the methodology of natural science leading to logical positivism. The critics of logical positivist epistemology such as Popper, Kuhn, Lakatos and Feyerabend are given systematic treatment. The last portion of the course is devoted to a study of the history of economic methodology in the nineteenth century. The methodological debates between the spokesmen of the Austrian School and the German Historical School are emphasized. Finally, the verificationist and the falsificationist approaches are contrasted in the works of Robbins and Hutchinson.
