For more than a quarter-century, the world economy has been propelled by a familiar version of globalization centered on the factories of China and cheap container shipping to carry goods around the planet. But that model has been shaken by a series of profound shocks – a trade war between the US and China, now evolving into broader hostilities; a global pandemic and its attendant disruption of industry and shipping, along with an upsurge in nationalism; deepening alarm over climate change. The seminar will explore how these shifts have altered the world economy and the global supply chain, yielding a new form of globalization increasingly focused on regional hubs of trade and transportation.
