This sweeping course, which covers topics like the food supply, climate change, human rights, education, and poverty, attempts to answer one question: How can societies be better organized to produce greater equality and opportunity that doesn’t denigrate the natural environment?  Each weekly lecture is taught in one-hour video segments, with online readings and assignments accompanying each session.
