In 1989, the Berlin Wall fell and soon after the USSR dissolved. Capitalism appeared ascendant. In this course, we will look at changes in the world economy over the ensuing 30 year,s focusing on the US, UK, Russia, China, Japan, and Germany, but we will also look at former Soviet bloc and developing countries to see how they have used economic policies to influence their economies.
