For those of you interested in an extra unit or two, this term we are offering an independent study / tutorial reading Joseph Schumpeter’s classic, Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy. For those of you unfamiliar with the book, here is a review by Schumpeter biographer, Thomas McCraw.
This is a thick book, so you might think about your time commitments before you complete the registration. The likely trajectory for this is for us to set up a weekly discussion time beginning the week of January 10 or 17. Right now I have three hands raised that want to participate.
I am thinking about requirements right now. The bulk of the effort will be focused on the reading, and there will be an attendant writing assignment as well.
