The Global Space Economy

Enrolment code: KGA208/308

Offered: Hobart: semester 1

Unit description:

Everyday terms such as ‘globalisation’, ‘structural adjustment’, ‘economic rationalism’, ‘protectionism’ and ‘multiculturalism’ reflect an increasing interest in the worldwide consequences of new patterns of demand, delivery and supply of goods and services. The unit examines recent developments in transportation and communication systems which, with new methods of production and distribution, are leading to an increasingly integrated global space economy. The consequences of this transition for employment, leisure and trade, and the environmental, social and cultural implications for individuals and communities in adjusting to a new era of change, in both developed and developing countries, are examined.
