The Evolution of American Capitalism

Contemporary American Capitalism is the result of a long evolutionary process shaped by historical events, legislation and fundamental changes in technology, culture, political organization and interpersonal relationships. This process has not ended as innovation and globalization continue to bring new challenges and new opportunities to our economic system. We journey from hunter/gatherer societies through Adam Smith, the Gilded Age, the Keynesian Revolution, Ayn Rand and Objectivism to Richard Thaler’s adaptive economics. We end the class by looking at the current state of the economy, an important topic in the upcoming election.
