Decades later, new realities show that globalization does not necessarily mean political, cultural, and economic convergence and that, in fact, forces against it are strong.

TOP REVIEWS FROM GLOBAL STRATEGY I: HOW THE GLOBAL ECONOMY WORKS
What a perfect and concise course!. I would highly recommend it to get good knowledge of mechanism of world economy.!
The course can be more detailed and more around recent events.
A good course for beginners to learn about history of free trade and globalisation. One needs to know about the thought processes and evolution of theories that govern the situations today
Thoroughly enjoyed learning the concepts taught in this course by Prof. Bucheli.
