In this survey course students explore the economic development and history of American capitalism beginning in the 19th century. Lectures, presentations, readings, and discussions examine ways in which American capitalism grew from its small industrial beginnings to a dominant global economic force. The course considers various subtopics related to the political and social developments affecting American economic development in the 20th and 21st centuries such as the fiscal consequences of external and internal warfare, gender and race relations, the altering structures of businesses in the United States, and the role of American capitalism within the world economy in the 20th and 21st centuries. At the conclusion of this course, students will contextualize American economic development within the global political and social framework.
