Description

Though many vehemently defend or decry the dominant global economic system—even with their lives and those of others—few actually understand the origins and theoretical underpinnings of that system... or its relationship to the increasingly volatile issue of immigration. A brief history of economic development in the modern age can motivate a more informed discussion of the pros and cons of the present economic order and the direction it should take in the future.
