The World in Turmoil: Inside the Engine of the Crisis

This course is expected to run but has not yet been scheduled.

Course Description

What are the origins of the current economic turmoil? Why do the youth rebel all over the world more than ever before? Why are Europe and America losing ground to emerging markets? How can we better understand the limits of our economic system and how will this affect our career opportunities, our health and our education?

This course will address these questions by reading some of the most analytical interventions published by leading economists and political scientists. Their points will then be illustrated with several documentaries and cutting-edge animations.

This course is only open to students enrolled in Pre-College Global Programs.
