by Antoine Ciolkovitch completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
A clear overview of globalization by one of the most brilliant teacher in the field. Pr Moran, helped by several guest lecturers, gives us a synthesis of trade agreements, FDI, imports, exports and their consequences on how productions of goods and services are located in a globalized economy.
