ECO422H1S Special Topics in Economics: Health and Economic Inequality

This course surveys the relationship between health outcomes and economic outcomes. We pay particular attention to exploring the bidirectional causal relationship between the two: poor health can lead to poor economic outcomes, while economic insecurity can have serious health implications. Specific topics vary by year, and may include: the economics of the COVID-19 pandemic, sources of racial and sociodemographic inequalities in health, and public policies insuring the economic risks of poor health.
