Knowing what to possibly expect from the future of the global economy presents an enormous opportunity for you to better prepare yourself for the momentous challenges and possibilities of tomorrow. Now you can, with this provocative six-lecture series. Offering pointed looks at the economic past, present, and possible futures of these three powerful nations, these lectures will have you finally grasping the intricate nature of our world economy and the driving forces responsible for where it will stand in years to come.
Professor Rodriguez's lectures are the perfect way to witness just how these three economies have gotten where they are today. Central to this series are revealing answers to some of your most pressing questions about the current state of the global economy and its future. How long will the United States remain at the top of the global economic ladder? What forces are responsible for China's and India's spectacular growth over the last two decades? When and why might China's and India's rapid annual growth rates slow down?
In addition to bringing you up to speed with the economic stories of these three world powers, these lectures also provide you with insights into the next decades of the world economy and the new economic order currently being forged.
Throughout the lectures, Professor Rodriguez uses his keen economist's eye to report ideas, trends, and possible outcomes you can expect to see as China and India continue to reach (and possibly even supersede) the economic power of the United States. So join him for this chance to find out, before everyone else, just what to expect from the economies of China, India, and the United States.

This recording gives a very good overview of the current state of what it predicts will be the 3 most important economies over the coming century. The authour presents a balanced narrative with a short history of each of these 3 economies and predictions about what is likely to happen in the future.
The narration is delivered by the authour and is interesting and easy to listen to. If I have any gripe about the book, it is that I was left wanting more.
Well worth a listen.
I feel so much better about our world now after completing this course. The knowledge that I gained from this lecture has replaced a lot of the fear with a strong understanding of the possibilities that we face now and in the future.
Also, the professor was a great speaker and made everything easy to understand for almost anyone. I liked this one so much that I just finished his other lecture on Why Economies Rise or Fall. If you choose that one you may not need this one; however, you will miss some great and fascinating details on china and India.
Learn, understand, then decide whether you accept or reject.
The topic of this book could discourage you from spending one credit on it. How can a lecture about the comparative economies of three nations with rich, complex histories be interesting? But if you've ever asked about the future value of the money in your pocket, this is a welcome addition to your library. It goes through the past few decades in each nation, then explores the future possibilities. Simple, educational and can be enjoyed in a single afternoon.
Professor Rodriguez delivered an engaging and enlightening series of lectures. I highly recommend this work!
"A Political Manifesto - NOT a Great Course"
This Great Course Audio-book unfortunately lacks any scientific merit.
This is a political manifesto for the american right as to why, in Professor Peter Rodriguez opinion, the USA (or "we" as Rodriguez says) will continue to reign supreme.
This is not aimed at you as a student of international politics or macro economics. It is not even aimed at you unless you are an American. US citizen/we/ours/us are used as synonyms throughout the lecture.
According to Rodriguez political manifesto all good things come from a free market economy. A prime example of Rodriguez political agenda is clear when he omits to mention the lack of enforcement of regulations at the heart of the 2008/9 financial crisis.
This Great Courses title lowers the credibility of the whole series.
