Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Baletti's Writing 101 "Race, Debt, and Power" was one of my favorite classes. The readings and class lectures were extremely engaging and intriguing; everyone in my class left with new insights about the global political economy and how it connects with inequality. Baletti pushed everyone to think critically and ask in-depth questions.
This class explored key historical moments and phenomena that have led to our current economic and financial circumstances, and we looked at these moments through the lens of financialization and neoliberal economic thought. We learned extensively about the ways in which financialization driven by the ceaseless accumulation of capital has often exploited and exacerbated inequality, and particularly racial inequality. This class was an eye-opening and argumentative take on current economic dilemmas.
