This course will discuss the trade-offs that states and the federal government must make in balancing budgets and adopting pro-growth job strategies in the face of globalization. Students will analyze whether tried-and-true economic theories stack up against the new global realities, will evaluate the political arguments of cutting to spur growth, and will discuss the role of government in job creation. The political battles will be raging, so the course will tackle relevant current events that unfold, and will cover the following areas, among others: recommendations from the President's Deficit Commission and state budget strategies; best practices from states and other countries for job creation; labor issues for the public and private sector; education and job training; U.S. trade policies; governing in politically divided government; and clean energy job creation in America.
