In this class, you will tackle some big questions: What is value? What is the role of markets in creating value? How do prices guide the behavior of companies and individuals? The answers will give you insights into the role of business in a free enterprise economy and the conditions under which markets serve people’s interests. Along the way, we’ll be pulling out important insights for managerial practice, and we’ll liven things up with examples from Professor Schaefer’s Roadside MBA Project.
