world economy emerged five hundred years ago is also accepted. Many experts,
however, see much longer economic interconnections going back to five thousand years.
Whatever the history of these interconnections, our current economic realities are
associated with trends that have developed over a long period of time and through more
recent globalization, power politics and interdependence in the world. The purpose of this
learning experience is to:
Examine global political economy in historical perspective
Understand the current patterns and changes in the world economy
Assess the effects of globalization of the world economy on the quality of life
around the world
Examine the world of formal and informal work and notion of employability
Explore solutions and alternatives to the problem of global economic inequity
Locate our place in the world economy
Aspects of the global economy that are normally left out of accounts such as
gendered, environmental, labor, informal economy and Southern perspectives receive
special attention in this course. GS 370 does not give primary importance to the political
economy of United States although it is addressed, as this aspect cannot be ignored in any
account of the world economy. Successful completion of learning activities and
achievement of learning objectives of Global Studies 370 enables students to fulfill a
Major Learning Outcome of the Global Studies degree program. This Learning Outcome
requires that students learn to:
Comprehend, analyze, and evaluate major structures, processes and effects of the
evolving global economy. They should also be able to comprehend, analyze and evaluate
Bhatti APSA T and L 2/08
