Course Info
Globalization is possibly the most overused word in contemporary social science, but it is far from being a new phenomenon; nor is globalization irreversible. This course provides an introduction to the history of the international economy over the past two centuries, and asks: What were the political and technological underpinnings of increased trade, capital and labour flows during the period; what were the effects of these flows on income distribution within countries; and what political responses did they provoke? What can explain the deglobalization experienced in the years between 1914 and 1945? What, if any, were the connections between globalization and convergence? Between globalization and growth? Along the way we will cover such basic topics in international economics as comparative advantage, the gains from trade, factor proportions theory, international factor flows, and the political economy of trade.
