Greenberg Seminar: States and Markets in American History
LAWS 95902
From the colonial period to the twentieth century, America evolved from a colonial outpost into the world’s largest economic power. Its tremendous growth was embedded in and helped to facilitate broader transformations in the state and society. This Greenberg samples from a recent resurgence in historical literature on the social, political, economic, and cultural dimensions of American capitalism. It aims to take up developments such as (but not limited to) the proliferation of state institutions for managing risk, the rise of transnational corporations, the history of antitrust, globalization, and the expansion of marketing and distribution.
