AD 702  Mobilizing Information for Change
AD70201 Syllabus
Material factors (trade, investment, production of goods and services, and resources consumption) are discussed first when the topic of globalization is raised, and prevail over non-economic factors that relate to the human condition. Whereas material factors determine economic success or failure, non-economic factors profoundly affect globalization. Course examines the fundamentals of globalization from an economic and non-economic perspective. Topics range include international trade, finance, aid, migration, ideas, and policy. Looks at where the factors overlap, cause individuals to re-evaluate their trust in and reliance upon governments, non-government organizations, or employers to sustain them, and their loyalties to family, nationality and culture.
