This class speaks to many of the issues that have captivated politicians and citizens during 2020 and 2021. We discuss capitalism versus socialism, and capitalism versus populism, etc. We cover Democratic Socialism and delve deep into Sweden and other Scandinavian countries that practice this model. We also cover trade protectionism and other policies Trump adopted since 2017 and Biden continued, such as subsidies for agriculture because of the tariffs. Finally, we explore technological innovation and often delve into subjects such as the economics of vaccines.
