GBUS 477 - Public Interest/Common Good
The ‘public interest’ and ‘common good’ were central concepts in educated discourse from Ancient Greece through the 1950s. By the 1980s they were in disfavor in most social sciences. The past decade has seen a resurgence in Social Science research on these concepts, including in experimental economics. The applications in both private sector activities and public policies are vast: identifying opportunities and making responsible business decisions that create both economic and social value; and defining issues, setting agendas, making decisions and implementing public policies. This course engages students in cutting-edge research on these fundamental questions of governance and management.
