Goals
Students will become familiar with the economic dimension of globalisation. Having completed this course, students will be able to:
* understand the economic impact of global issues
* understand how globalisation matters for firms’ strategies and policy
* evaluate global economic governance and policies
* get acquainted with issues specific to emerging markets
Description
Globalisation is a controversial economic phenomenon. Is free trade a blessing or a threat? Should all countries open their borders to capital flows? Are Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) necessary for innovation and growth or do they block the diffusion of ideas? What are the economic consequences of migration flows? How can countries coordinate their actions to deal with the environmental consequences of globalisation? In this course, you will develop an understanding of various economic tools that will allow you to form an informed opinion on these issues and you will be trained in how to put forth your ideas in an organized and persuasive manner. All aspects of globalisation will be covered: flows of goods and service, flows of capital, flows of ideas and flows of people.
Literature
The course literature consists of a collection of academic and newspaper/magazine articles, plus shorter sections from multiple books.
