International Economy and Finance - ECOP1003

Year - 2020

This unit explores global economic integration, especially the renewed 'globalisation' from the 1980s. It considers changing historical patterns and different explanatory theories. It analyses debates about whether globalisation has been for the better or worse and who have been the winners and the losers. The Unit concurrently explores the forms of, and debates about, the regulation of economic activity on a global scale, addressing the development and changing roles of states and international agencies.
