COMPARATIVE BUSINESS HISTORY
Updated A.Y. 2020-2021
The course deals with world economic and business history of the 20th century up to the beginning of the 21st century. It is organized as a sort of journey around the world, surfing across the two main historical dimensions of time and space.
Based on a neo-institutional approach, it will compare the varieties of capitalism of the different regions, considering the enterprise and the State as major actors.
Main processes will be analysed in global perspective (industrial revolutions, economic and financial crisis, regional integration, et al..).
Specific case-studies will be the object of in-depth focuses, brought into with the active participation of the students.
