As a part of our Economics minor, and just a really interesting course otherwise, this is Sherman Institute’s spin on personal budgeting and financial management. “In the world but not of the world.” “Slave to the man or off the radar?” Systemic marriage, or off the grid? Instead of teaching the “how tos” of bank accounts, investments, and the like, our course teaches the ethics required to resist the temptation to use all the systemic tools designed to drive a family into debt and deeper into the slavery systems. Household budgeting, scam avoidance, living without insurance or licensing, and not buying things with coupons just because you have them – all such subjects are fair game in this entry-level economics course.
Sole Proprietorship, Partnership, Corporation, or other business model? Do I have an invention to patent? Basic topics involved in running business operations, from farming to manufacturing, are covered. For Sherman Institute, this course answers the question: will I have a “job” or will I be a contract provider of some product or service?
“Legal Tax Avoidance” is something every person wants to understand, but there are distinct differences in the powers and authorities of state and local governments over those of the federal. This course dissects those minutia at the state/local level covering laws, state constitutions, and related information.
Exclusive to Sherman Institute, this offering uses an extremely deep pair of textbooks. We trace the history of the “dollar” from its Spanish origins through modern times. (This Part I stops at the Civil War epoch.) Emphasis is placed on the declension of this “dollar” in American and world economic affairs from the legal perspective. (Required, all Poli-Sci & Economics students, elective all others. Prerequisites: PS-154 & PS-254, and a score of 80+ in EC-97.)
This course covers many of the legal aspects of business ownership & operation, such as contracts, employer-employee relationships and labor generally, business ethics with customers & customer accounts, etc. Those wanting an Economics or Business minor would want this course.
