China and the U.S. in a Globalizing World

Course Number: ECON 13181
Instructor: Wyatt Brooks

China and the United States have the two largest economies and two largest militaries in the world. The relationship between these two countries is defined by tight economic links (such as trade and financial flows) and by areas of policy disagreement (as in the areas of human rights and foreign policy). This course is designed to help students begin to understand the history and economy of China as well as how increased integration with China has changed the U.S. economy.
