We often get the question, “what will we learn at Economics for Leaders?”
At Economics for Leaders, we teach Economics in the context of 5 Economic Reasoning Propositions, or “ERPs.” Morning discussions, activities, and interactive sessions introduce participants to the economic way of thinking.
ECONOMIC REASONING PROPOSITION #1:
People choose, and individual choices are the source of social outcomes.
ECONOMIC REASONING PROPOSITION #2:
Choices impose costs; people receive benefits and incur costs when they make decisions.
ECONOMIC REASONING PROPOSITION #3:
People respond to incentives in predictable ways.
ECONOMIC REASONING PROPOSITION #4:
Institutions are the “rules of the game” that influence choices.
ECONOMIC REASONING PROPOSITION #5:
Understanding based on knowledge and evidence imparts value to opinions.
