Explores the institutional structures, policies and doctrines that have shaped global economic governance since World War II. The course will address the four pillars of global economic governance until now: the Bretton Woods institutions, The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank; the GATT, which later evolved into the World Trade Organization (WTO); and the multinational oil companies that dominated Middle East oil fields and upon which Japan and Western European countries depended. The course will also describe the huge shifts currently underway to the foundations of global economic governance, particularly the rising importance of middle income countries such as China and India and the role of state-owned oil companies in reshaping the architecture of global economic governance. Finally the seminar identifies and discusses alternative models or approaches for future global economic governance.
