Economic History (Ⅱ) National Taiwan University
This class is taught in English and can be taken separately or as a continuation of the first semester's economic history course. This semester will cover the economic history of the 20th century emphasizing the Asian economies. During the first part of the semester an economy-by-economy overview of economic developments over the last hundred years will be presented. Then in the second part of the course, we will look at particular topics in economic history. Each three-hour session will consist of one-a two-hour lecture and one hour of group work. Group work will involve writing a short paper concerning an assigned reading. Most weeks, groups will be randomly assigned.
By the end of the course, students should have a reasonable understanding of what has been going on in the Asian economies over the last hundred years.
There are no prerequisites. Expect a lot of graphs and statistics, but there will be no mathematical modeling. In past courses, students from a wide variety of departments have taken this course.
