Description: Socially and economically, globalization has produced uneven progress and changing demographics. In emerging economies, the middle class has exploded, but has shrunk in mature markets like the United States and Western Europe. However, such changes are rippling back and forth across the globe. In this course, Dr. Guillén examines how these trends are driving other changes in government, business and economics, and even culture. Each week, students will view videos, study data, and read case studies that illustrate how these changes are interconnected and how they will ultimately shape the future.
