Online course: New Economic Powers: A course created for Oxford University's Department for Continuing Education. "In the global economy of the 21st century, Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRIC) are suddenly emerging as major players, shaking up the existing order, and generating waves of uncertainty around the world. Will the U.S., Japan, and Europe be surpassed by these new economic powers? How did these countries achieve their success? Will that success last? What lessons can be learned from their strategies? And how will the world be reshaped by their emergence?" The course runs three times a year and enrolment information can be found here.
