The tension between business, government, and society appears to be at an all-time high. In this course, we will examine a wide range of topics, which contribute to this tension. More specifically, we will discuss foundations of human behavior, views on economic policy, evolving social norms, ethics, and stakeholder perspectives/goals, as they pertain to current hot-topic issues like taxation, the living wage, and protectionism, among others.
- Review select theories examining human behavior
- Describe the underlying assumptions behind fiscal and monetary policies
- Describe the PEST model and explain how PEST can be integrated into forecast models
- Identify the characteristics and goals of stakeholder groups
