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 ( http://smarsite.ucdavis.edu ) 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

    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.
