Want to learn the theoretical foundations on cooperation and cooperatives? I will be offering the graduate course “Economics of cooperatives” at the Estonian University of Life Sciences (EMU). The course follows an industrial organization (I/O) approach, covering advanced micro, vertical markets, market structures, cooperative theory, game theory. The course will take place November 4-7 at the EMU at Tartu, Estonia.
The course is supported by the European Regional Development Fund.
The core Econ project prepared an introductory economics curriculum that is freely available online. The e-book is simply called The Economy and provides lecture slides and tests, covering several economic issues like inequality, globalization, climate change, etc. Some of the material of the course has been used at colleges around the world, including the University College London and Sciences Po, in Paris.
