International Economic Law
This course focuses on how countries, international organizations, multinational corporations and non-governmental organizations have responded to the global financial crisis. We look at how International Trade, Foreign Direct Investment, and International Finance have been impacted. Topics explored include: how the bank bailouts have effected global finance, why China and Germany are growing while others stagnate, debates over decisions by countries to pursue stimulus or austerity, global employment crises, and US efforts to become an export-led economy. International Economic Law lies at the heart of these debates.
