About The Course

The East India Company came to India in 1608 to trade in spices and cotton but stayed on to rule India till 1947. In the early 2000s, we saw a reversal of roles when the Indian conglomerate Tata Group expanded their global operations by acquiring several British companies such as the steel giant Corus, Jaguar Land Rover, to name a few. While control over indigenous people was essential for profitability in the 1600s, it is not so today. In this course, we will discuss changes in global patterns of trade and their effects on different people in the economy. What is the role of policy and technology in influencing international movements of goods and labor? Can anyone get high-quality goods and services from around the world or is it a privilege reserved for the wealthy? As skilled labor in a developing economy, what is the world that you will inherit? The course will use economic tools to understand the complex issues in international trade.
