Invisible Hand or Invisible Will
June 27 + 30, 6-8pm ET
Marjan Fadavi Ardekani
While economists have been obsessed with the idea of the "invisible hand" they have not been concerned enough with the idea of "invisible will" or power. In this course, we discuss some of the definitions of power and the curious neglect of it in economics. After surveying cases of explicit mentions of power in the field we discuss concepts that have been instrumental in developing an almost power-free economic narrative.
