BUSINESS 150A Community History of Business (XS)(SS)3 credits
In one form or another, we have been doing "business' for thousands of years. Some aspects of business are unchanged - businesses provide goods and services to their communities. But the potter sitting in a market in Babylon would be unlikely to recognize the ceramics being mass produced and shipped around the globe, each including a bar code or RF tag to monitor their movement through a global logistics network. Similarly the small business man of Rome would be unfamiliar with the community expectations we now have for our business leaders. In this course students will review the historic role of business in many communities and will research the civic engagement of business in a particular community of their choosing.
