Innovative dynamism is the economic system which brings us the new goods and processes that make life longer and better. We will examine how the system works, including: The role of the breakthrough inventor and the innovative entrepreneur; whether the system improves or hurts ethical behavior, culture, equality, and the environment; the costs to workers in terms of job loss, and the benefits to workers in terms of the creation of better jobs; how funding, regulatory, and patent policies affect innovative dynamism; and how innovative dynamism in medicine can result in more and faster cures for cancer and other diseases. (Cross-listed with ECON 4340).

Prerequisite(s): ECON 2200 or BSAD 8180 or permission of the instructor.
