Spring 2009 Economics 382: The History of Globalization David S. Jacks dsjacks@gmail.com http://www.sfu.ca/~djacks/courses/Globalization/382.html Office hours: 1:00 to 3:00, M, WMX 4665 COURSE DESCRIPTION This course has as its focus the evolution of the global economy from very early times. Of particular interest will be historical developments dating from the nineteenth century up to the present day. This longer period from c. 1800 to c. 2000 is instructive in that it witnesses the integration of the world’s nations into the first truly global economy, its disintegration in the wake of the First World War and isolationist retrenchment up to the Second World War, and the contemporary reintegration of the global economy. The first weeks will be spent on an overview of the five major periods of globalization: its pre- history (everything before 1500), its early history (1500-1800), it first wave (1800-1913), its decline (1919-1939) and it subsequent resurgence (1950-present).
