Now you can, with this provocative six-lecture series. Offering pointed looks at the economic past, present, and possible futures of these three powerful nations, these lectures will have you finally grasping the intricate nature of our world economy and the driving forces responsible for where it will stand in years to come.
Professor Rodriguez's lectures are the perfect way to witness just how these three economies have gotten where they are today. Central to this series are revealing answers to some of your most pressing questions about the current state of the global economy and its future. How long will the United States remain at the top of the global economic ladder? What forces are responsible for China's and India's spectacular growth over the last two decades?

In addition to bringing you up to speed with the economic stories of these three world powers, these lectures also provide you with insights into the next decades of the world economy and the new economic order currently being forged.
Throughout the lectures, Professor Rodriguez uses his keen economist's eye to report ideas, trends, and possible outcomes you can expect to see as China and India continue to reach (and possibly even supersede) the economic power of the United States. So join him for this chance to find out, before everyone else, just what to expect from the economies of China, India, and the United States.

A Political Manifesto - NOT a Great Course

This Great Course Audio-book unfortunately lacks any scientific merit.

This is a political manifesto for the american right as to why, in Professor Peter Rodriguez opinion, the USA (or "we" as Rodriguez says) will continue to reign supreme.

This is not aimed at you as a student of international politics or macro economics. It is not even aimed at you unless you are an American. US citizen/we/ours/us are used as synonyms throughout the lecture.

According to Rodriguez political manifesto all good things come from a free market economy. A prime example of Rodriguez political agenda is clear when he omits to mention the lack of enforcement of regulations at the heart of the 2008/9 financial crisis.

This Great Courses title lowers the credibility of the whole series.
