Join Town & Gown as we celebrate our 50th year on the campus of Chapman University!
Is it really possible to combine the disciplines of economics and humanities? These two areas of study are seen to be fundamentally dissimilar. Economics finds that homo sapiens are the most properous species in the history of planet Earth. But studies of economics and markets do not take into consideration the broad range of human emotions and motives that make us human. Does properity really have anything to do with the human virtues that we truly value: Justice, courage, faith, hope, and love?
In this presentation, attendees will learn about Homanomics, which offers a welcome understanding of the unique relationship between economics and humanities.
