ECOP1003 - International Economy and Finance

Semester 2, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Roni Demirbag

Description

The world economy has changed dramatically since World War 2, especially with the renewed 'globalisation' from the 1980s. This unit traces the historical patterns of globalisation. It analyses the debates about whether globalisation has been for the better or worse overall, and who would have been the winners and the losers in this process. The unit explores the changing theories that have been used to explain and evaluate global economic integration. 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 and evaluates their capacity to generate global equity and economic stability.
