From Thomas Piketty’s bestseller Capital in the 21st Century: “It is surely no accident that money—at least in the form of specific amounts—virtually disappeared from literature after the shocks of 1914–1945.” This class wants to return an understanding to writing not only of wealth but also economics as a whole. It will explain the key ideas of Piketty’s book and provide basic instruction on the key concepts of economics, a field that has been dominated by mathematics for thirty years and is only now returning to its proper place: politics. A twenty-first century writer should feel at home in economics (yes, that’s a pun). About half of the class will be writing workshop.
Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.
If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.
If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.
If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
