Ethics and Economics

What happens when ethics and economics meet?
Some say they don't. They can't. They won't. But they do.

The Ethics & Economics Summer Program invites rising 9–12 grade students to engage in thinking about the intersection of the economy, business, and government through an ethical lens.

  • As a human race, what should everyone be entitled do? What trade-offs are required?
  • What is money? 
  • Should our economy have more or less government control?

This one-week intensive program will explore big economic and ethical questions with industry professionals, case questions, discussions with trained ethicists, and a field trip to Wall Street.

PROGRAM DETAILS

By focusing on the intersection of government and business, students will get some answers. They will:

  • Look at the business and government connection
  • Consider the "trade-offs"
  • Resolve ethical dilemmas related to economics
  • Engage with business and government leaders
  • Create public policy
  • Students will grasp the complexities of public policy as they interact with professionals and practice teamwork. They will emerge with an understanding of the complexities of policy formation.
