The course is aimed to maintain the students’ representations of the complexity of the economy of global market. Comparative economic systems are often viewed as a divergence of traditional economics types: free and planned economies with a new type of mixed systems. This course focused on the comparison of three main types of economics systems: Anglo-Saxon, Continental and Asian.
