This course proposes the basic tools for understanding the main problems of an economy.
Explore the fundamental notions of understanding economic mechanisms
Question economic phenomena and explanatory theories.
Understand the tools and indicators of economics.
Designing the socio-ecological transition




This course should enable students to question the economic and social environment in which they operate. Economic phenomena and theories will be understood as they question the socio-ecological transition. It will therefore be a question of presenting the fundamental notions and theories in order to build a reflection on the transition. 5 main questions will be the subject of the course:
Does growth necessarily harm the environment?
Are markets effective in responding to ecological issues?
Can we finance the socio-ecological transition?
Should we produce and consume locally?
What can the state do for the transition?
