Visions for the Global Economy explores a collection of global issues that are vital to every student of world affairs. It addresses key topics on the global stage, focusing on the foundational aspects of these global issues. It gets to the heart
of diverse arguments that create roadblocks to progress in the global economy and combines current affairs with key turning points in history.
This guide examines topics of the global economy at their core, as each chapter traces the storyline of one issue. Global issues and the decisions world leaders make are complex; and there never is one clear reason as to why something exists or why something takes place.
Visions for the Global Economy also considers economic growth, global economic governance, and political economy, providing a solid base for understanding the increasingly complex world today. The global economy has changed exponentially over the last decade and a half. Today, students cannot exclusively study politics or economics. They need to study both and have a good grasp of the political economy to succeed in today's world.
