The objectives, methodology, content and organization of the course are presented in detail. A discussion on the role of business in today’s society follows.

In the second part of the class, we learn about values, what they are and how they influence rational behavior. We contrast economic and ethical values to structure the classical approaches to rational behavior and propose a meta-framework to better understand their articulation.
