How did our 21st century world of 8 billion people in 195 UN recognized countries come into being? This course will explore how natural environments, energy and resource use, and human economic development all worked to breathe into life the world we live in today. We’ll do a “deep dive” into the emergence of modern human civilization, focusing on how four significant revolutions - Agriculture, Industry, Energy, and Communications - shaped our modern world, and how these 4 revolutions created trades offs, along with winners and losers, in our contemporary world. We’ll also examine development in specific “case study" countries to explore how different nations and cultures have crafted systems of development. Join us!
