INTB 3351 History of Globalization Reading Study Guide Jeffrey Frieden, Global Capitalism , 127-154, 173-228 1. How did the Great War transform the financial position of the United States in the world economy? What were the implications of this? (pp. 129-134) WW1 forced all Europe to depend on American capital, markets, and technology and to look to it for political leadership. The war devastated Europe but made the United States the world’s principal industrial, financial, and trading power. From 1914-1919 America changed from being the world’s biggest debtor to its biggest lender. 2. What was the main reason for the United States’ inconsistent international position in the 1920s, embracing both global financial leadership and political isolationism?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
