Program Description:
Economics 
Facing increased tensions in trade and inequality, how do we promote an open, well-governed playing field leveraging interconnectedness for the benefit of all?

Sweden punches way above its weight in several sectors of the economy with well-established companies such as Volvo, Ikea, H&M, and innovation startups such as Spotify, Skype, and Candy Crush. However, as the global stage changes, how will Sweden avoid a ‘race to the bottom’ in its response to the new economic challenges in cooperation with and compared to the rest of Europe… and the U.S.?

CORE COURSE

Comparative Economics: Global Risks and European Responses
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
Markets generate wealth, but there are no guarantees of how. On the international stage, the volatility of markets contributes to many of the key global challenges of our time: climate change, widening inequality, unprecedented waves of migration, financial crises, and increasing unemployment in the wake of digitalization, automation, and AI. In this course, we consider how responses to these challenges differ between Europe and the U.S., with a focus on the nature and extent of public interventions in the marketplace.
Week-Long Study Tour: Athens 
Core Course Week: Arctic Sweden 
Prerequisites: One course in intermediate or advanced microeconomics at university level.
