HST343 Topics in Economic History

[3–0, 3 cr.]

This course may concentrate on any theme in economic history, whether this is the development of economic theory itself, a discussion of economic decline and or progress in a particular region or period, the interplay of economy and ideology in the formation of ideologies such as socialism and capitalism, or the history of a particular economic sector (agriculture, industry, finance). The influence of an increasingly globalized world on production, labor, distribution of wealth, north-south dynamics, access to natural resources, and development is a central theme.
