The ISI PPE program is an interdisciplinary, cost-effective, and flexible approach for students to receive a broad liberal arts education that prepares them for the achievement of freedom. PPE is an intellectually exciting approach, juxtaposing key disciplines while ordering and integrating knowledge for greater coherence. “How Markets Work” is the first online course in the ISI PPE program.
