The Global Economy: Contemporary Debates by Thomas H. Oatley
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Global Economy: Contemporary Debates introduces students to contemporary issues in the global economy by presenting a series of provocative articles written by prominent voices. This innovative text examines attempts to shape opinion and influence public policy rather than simply surveying academic literature or promoting a theoretical argument. There is no other text quite like this on the market-most texts discuss theoretical aspects while Oatley challenges students to take a perspective. This debate-style approach encourages students to think actively and develop a point of view.
