The seminar based course designed for students on the PPE degree will study classic texts in PPE. Each session a group of students will introduce a classic article locating it in the literature and demonstrating the puzzle or problem the author addressed and the solution they came up with.

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of classic texts in economics
- Formally describe economic models
- Coherently summarise and explain the ideas of articles discussed in seminars
- Apply theoretical results to practical examples
- Assignment (30) [LO 1,2,3,4]
