COMPARATIVE CAPITALISM

In this course, we present variations of modern capitalism by comparing and contrasting the dominant model to its other counterparts.

The word capitalism lends itself to broad generalizations that highlight the importance of private property and free markets as the supreme arbitrator of economic outcomes. However, national trajectories give form to many varieties, suggesting that history, culture and institutions do play a major role in shaping markets and organizing society.

In this five-session course, we present cross-country variations of modern capitalism by comparing and contrasting the dominant Anglo-American model to its other counterparts.
