World Economy

The purpose of this course is to provide a background to engage with the big topics that characterize the world economy. It covers issues like financial globalization, trade, development strategies, inequality, migration, and climate change. We are going to take an historical view focusing on the dynamics after War World II. At the end of the course the student is expected to have a critical and analytical perspective on these topics.
