What exactly do economists mean by "global economy"? How does globalization impact individual nations? Is it good or bad for America? These are some of the questions raised in this comprehensive 36-lecture course. In the third lecture, recorded in mid-2008, Professor Taylor confidently predicts that the current economic downturn will be shallow and soon over. This flub makes one skeptical of the other opinions he expresses. On the other hand, the facts he cites seem far more convincing. He's good at making complex issues clear and presenting them in a commonsense order. If you bear with his grating vocal style and his lame attempts at humor, you'll find a lot to learn here.
