ECN 110B: World Economic History II Spring 2009 Instructor : Chris Meissner E-Mail : [email protected] Class location and time : Storer 01322, TTH 12:10- 1:30 P.M. Course website and information : SMARSITE ( ) Office : 1104 SSH Office Hours : Wednesdays 2:00-4:00 P.M. (previously Tuesdays), Fridays 3:00-4:00 or by appointment TA: Paul Gaggl E-mail: [email protected] Section Location and time: Office Hours: M 10-1145AM Office: SSH 118 TA: Will Ambrosini E-mail: [email protected] Section Location and time: TBA Office Hours: TBA Office: TBA This course introduces topics in the economic development of various regions of the world since 1870. It will also focus on the evolution of the global economy itself. Getting familiar with the economic history of the global economy will make you more comfortable in understanding current events such as the global economic crisis, globalization, the prospects for growth in China, India and the rest of the developing world. These issues make news headlines everyday (well, at least in the New York Times or the Financial Times, which by the way you should be reading on a daily basis). Your understanding of these events and issues will hopefully improve with this course. The course requires no prior knowledge of history but does require econ 1A and 1B or the instructor’s approval to enroll. Note: This is not solely an exercise in narratives and descriptive economic history, but rather the course is oriented to providing an empirical basis on which to explore issues and problems in macro and micro economics. 1
