These two themes have sparked debates for centuries as they have great implications in the development of countries. Also, this course challenges students' critical thinking and analytical skills with a wide range of controversial readings on these two topics. This course is divided into four sections. The first one introduces students to the idea of the business cycle. The second section aims at explaining how capitalism was born and how it has evolved in the 19th and 20th centuries.
