This was yet another high quality offering from the Teaching Company. The course reviewed the development of the modern world economy over the past several hundred years. It details the contributions of numerous factors--trade, transportation, energy, communications, banking, legal systems, money, technology, population growth, education, etc. I enjoyed seeing all the various elements dissected and then put back together. Countless interesting facts pop up throughout the course and despite the broad scope of the course, all is held together by the timeline. I cannot say I came away with stunning new insight, but I can view the complex modern economy with clearer vision and appreciation. I recommend the course highly, as I would 80-90% of the many offerings I have enjoyed from the Teaching Company.
