This course provides an overview of the history, theories and institutions of the contemporary world economy, the workings of which constitutes essential background information for any student interested in understanding globalization. The focus will be on how things are made and how they move: the globalization of production (international trade and investment and migration) and the globalization of finance (international capital flows, the balance of payments and exchange rates). Underpinning these concepts are theories of market integration, transnational corporations, the politics governing the global economy, and their relation to innovation, economic growth, inequality and development. The course will be built around case studies and student projects, but will also involve a survey of fundamental principles of international economics.
This course is open to all bachelor level students at the university.
