The global economy in the third millennium

From classical economics to the economics of the common good

In this course we will review the fundamental concepts of Economics. We will study economics from a historical point of view, to understand the great differences that exist, for example, between the capitalist and communist visions of what is best for the common good. This will allow us to approach the understanding of the current global economic situation, while exploring emerging paradigms of economics.
