Period

Learning outcomes

The course is focussed on the historical facts and theories that attest the gradual decline of Institutions and economic policies inspired by the traditional view of capitalism both as a competitive market ruled by the law and as the most efficient means of promoting collective interests.
The course is based on two main approaches:
1. the development of economic theory from the death of John Maynard Keynes to Paul Krugman’s International Economics;
2. economic development in leading countries from the post-war era to 2010.
This twofold approach rests on the idea that economic theories and economic facts are not separable and that there is no critical understanding of economic processes without historical comparison. Participation is warmly encouraged not only through actual attendance at the lectures but above all through an active presence, by raising issues and discussing some of the topics of the course in the e-learning forum, within the main purpose of supporting and fostering a critical attitude to the study of economics.
