Economic systems

The class is introduced to the notion of a ’traditional’ or ’subsistence’ economy, looking at its benefits and drawbacks. Students learn about the market economy, comparing free market economies to an actual street market. Listening exercises focus on pygmy societies, in particular the Mbuti tribe of central Africa, and Adam Smith’s ‘invisible hand’ theory.
