Description

For upper level undergraduate and graduate level courses in International Political Economy, International Economics, and International Relations in departments of Political Science.This text offers a comparative and collective learning approach to the principles behind the politics of managing the global economic changes since World War II. Historical principles, key concepts, and persistent trends are set in a context of adapting to global change without losing cultural identity. The text contrasts different perspectives: rational choice, economic nationalism/realism/ mercantilism, liberalism, Marxism, world systems, environmentalism, and collective learning. Managing World Economic Change, 3/e discusses the economic shifts in business cycles and global capital flows and the impact upon the world economy. It demonstrates the importance of "globalization" as a long-term process that has sped up of late, and how it has shaped many national and international organizations and institutions in their scramble to catch up in this environment of change.show more
