One thought on “An Economic History of the World since 1400

  1. Ilinca

    Solid, but not groundbreaking well, it couldn t, not when it covers seven centuries You re better off reading Hayek vs Keynes, or even The Ascent of Money, or many others I don t know about this is basically a brief history of the world that focuses on the build up of industry rather than on culture or politics Some ideas are worth running away with like the standardization of knowledge through the printing press which is interesting philosophically than economically Overall it s interesting fo [...]

  2. Marcos

    This is the first time that I m disappointed with a The Great Courses product The title of the course is misleading as easily than half of all the information provided has only indirect connection to economic events, and most of them are so basic that any student familiarized with general history would have already gone over them several times For example, the episodes dealing with the communist phenomenon are merely a couple of episodes that summarize the main historical events in the USSR and [...]

  3. Douglas O'laughlin

    Oh god So 1 realllllly great but also 2 realllly boring and drags out to be really boring Keep in mind what this is a lecture series about econ over history if you want to learn about that, GREAT If not boy.

  4. Charlene

    Nice history of the world and civilization with a focus on the history of economics Listened on Audible and it was so informative and wonderful, I listened to it twice.

  5. Michael Bailey

    I found this lecture series generally enjoyable, but can t deny that my mind did wander a fair bit I m not sure if it was a consequence of the content or simply my interest level at the time of listening I think I may have hit my limit of general European and world history for the moment I ve listened to a number of lectures in the past year, as well as a few podcasts, that have dealt with the last four or five hundred years of European history That said, the overlap has provided a nice review f [...]

  6. Joe

    Throughout the presented history, the parties who are in favor of Free Market economic policies are those parties who have complete or near complete control of the market Perhaps we see the same thing today.

  7. Nilesh

    Most popular economic history books tend to be about various ideologies and their founders proponents Even as they discuss the key economic events, the focus rarely shifts away from pitching great ideas against each other This course does a little bit of that, but its value is in distilling the same events to provide the genesis of numerous economic facets of modern life these are constructs that we take for granted but they are utterly artificial whose coming into being have been impacted socie [...]

  8. Scott Diamond

    There are 48 lectures in this course and I had hoped that I would walk away with a clear understanding of economic development but unfortunately the series does not focus on economics as much as I would like As the lecturer covers history he spend quite a bit of time on technology, military and politics but not as much on economic principles For example on technology he covers various iterations of the steam engines and for computers covers innovations at Xerox PARC but he covers this at the cos [...]

  9. Reza

    A grandiose title for a brief yet entertaining history of economic forces that shaped the world today Certainly a good introduction for enthusiasts who have limited knowledge of economic history of the world

  10. Grant

    Very concise and thoughtful Not preachy Illustrates the influence of technology on economic forces and tides Perhaps the information technology section is the weakest, but that economic book is still being written.

  11. FernandoHoces de la Guardia

    Pointless collection of dates and facts Dry and impossible to hang to a main message Not sure if I m getting tired of the audio lectures or this guy did a horrible job by just reading lecture notes.

  12. Andrei Hognogi

    This is not a deeply meaningful book or a narative one, but it s an excelent book that does exactly what it promises It explains how economic relations shaped recent history.

  13. Dave

    it was good I learned and reinforced existing facts and theories I think I expected something surprising and insightful and never quite hit that spot The last few chapters flowed a little poorly but they dealt with modern undecided history and are affected by how the world will develop Overall, a pleasant read over a few weeks on a topic that I m passionate about.

  14. Mario Russo

    Great stuff if you have read listened any Teaching company history course on that period, this is a great complement but on economics side of things Fascinating.

  15. Jacob O'connor

    I like economics especially when they re in my favor , so I expected to like this lecture series a little Harreld is great when he s speaking from experience.Notes 1 Bailey Dunlap s old maxim, it doesn t matter what actually happened, only what people think happened2 The Marxist error of measuring value by production effort3 Mercantilism the economic theory that trade generates wealth and is stimulated by the accumulation of profitable balances, which a government should encourage by means of p [...]
