The class, International Economics, provides the student the tools to better understand the current world economy. The first half of the course begins with a review of and builds on the students’ understanding of how a modern market economy works, emphasizing the determination of GDP. A particular focus will be on understanding economic fluctuations (recessions and depressions) and current economic problems, including today’s fragile world recovery. The course continues by examining the nature of international trade and development. The tremendous economic progress in some parts of the world will be assessed along with the remaining challenges of severe poverty and inequality.
