Welcome!

Hi everyone,


My name is Richard Folse and, like many of you, I am also a manager. Having an understanding of economics is extremely valuable in what you do and I hope you will walk away from this class with increased knowledge of this important topic.


Over the next five weeks we will be looking at multiple articles, in addition to the texts. We will also view some videos that I have borrowed from Professor Sam Heinrich in order to gain deeper appreciation for the economic process and how it is impacted by daily events around the world.


As we progress through the course, I also hope that we will be able to discuss how our faith can be represented in in the secular workplace.


To get started, please download and thoroughly read the Course Syllabus. Next, be sure that you have uploaded your photo into Moodle and updated your personal profile. Finally, take a couple of minutes and introduce yourself to the rest of us in the Introductions forum on our course main page. After you finish these tasks you'll be ready to start Week 1.


I'm looking forward to getting to know each of you as we explore the world of economics together!
