This course focuses on why the global economic crisis since 2007 is lasting so long and cutting so deep, why bailouts of major financial markets and enterprises failed to end it, and why austerity has become the major government policy to address it. We will also contrast the consequences for different parts of the world economy of the crisis, the bailouts, and austerity. Finally, we will examine alternative policies, how they would have affected the global economy differently, and why they have not yet been applied.
Open to Graduate students.
