Description: BULM758F Economics of Sustainable Development: Firms are increasingly confronted by issues of sustainability, whether via demand side or social pressures, a quest for superior and sustained performance or a need to comply with regulation. Sustainability issues facing firms are multi-faceted and, in most cases, without clear strategic solutions. The goal of this course is to better understand the issues of sustainability in a series of different contexts. Within each context, we examine the underlying market failures that lead to sub-optimal social outcomes along with commonly employed economic solutions to these problems.

Description:As a result of student concerns from last year, the second year students implemented a “Student Help Desk” during the midterm and finals weeks of the fall 2009 semester. Second year students reserved space in the Caserooms and were available for questions regarding economics, finance, statistics and accounting. Some second year students were resistant to participate because they did not feel it was fair that the new first year students would have tutoring available when they did not have the same opportunities. Overall, about 10 students volunteered for the Help Desk. Complaints about lack of tutoring services available, especially in finance, have decreased drastically from last year.
