Is the US still the dominant economic power in the world? If not, is that a bad thing? John Colangelo
The world economic order, born after World War II, to a large extent fashioned by the United States, was based on two fundamental principles: in monetary terms, the principle of fixed parities and the dollar standard (although the dollar was convertible into gold at the request of the central banks); in commercial terms, the principle of non-discrimination and free trade. Practically speaking, the United States was assuming the role played by Britain during its period of greatness.

As the world now commemorates this 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, it appears to many people that the economic order set up at that time has crumbled, especially in the Asia-Pacific zone.  Individual nations such as China and groups of nations such as the E.U. are now vying for economic dominance.  We will analyze the trends and consider the consequences  in this discussion-based two-session class.

John Colangelo has a strong interest in history and current events and has been an instructor in previous LLCC courses.  He worked for several major corporations before coming to the central coast, where he became a high school counselor.  John is originally from New York City.

Mondays, November 9 & 16, 2015, 10am-12 noon  SLO Adult School
