Problem Solving 101: How Economic Thinking Can Create a Better World

Colorado School of Mines | Golden, CO | July 13 - 16


“There is only one difference between a bad economist and a good one: the bad economist confines himself to the visible effect; the good economist takes into account both the effect that can be seen and those effects that must be foreseen.” Frederic Bastiat

Economic thinking is a powerful tool that can help you solve problems both in personal interactions and in society as a whole. This seminar helps you create a foundation of economic thinking that you will use to analyze problems, evaluate solutions, and make better decisions. We won’t tell you the answers for solving all of the world’s problems, but we will give you the tools to find the answers yourself.
