Unit of study_

Dynamics of the Global Economy - INGS2603

Year - 2020

Political upheaval in the world's major economies raises urgent questions about the future of the global economy. This unit examines the development of global economic relations. We will explore competing economic theories to understand the forces at the heart of the capitalist system. We will then examine how these forces have shaped the global economy. Focus will be on the contested nature of economic transformation, the role of global institutions, international trade and finance, labour, the environment, patterns of distribution and inequality.
