SOCY 1071 Global Inequalities (Fall/Spring: 3 )
What is globalization and what are its consequences? This course examines the relationship between globalization and global inequality. This course is divided into four parts. First we ask: who are the beneficiaries of the outsourced economy? Second, we look at the emergence of a new global underclass. Third, we look specifically at the U.S., and ask what the decline of the American manufacturing base. Finally, we return to examine the movement of capital across the globe, and ask: what are the new risks of globalization in the face of systemic financial crises like the banking crisis of 2008?
