The module provides the reader with the general understanding of the European economic development from the beginning of the modern economic growth in England in the wake of the Industrial revolution to the economic downturn caused by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020-2021. The course also introduces the reader to the concept of aggregate production and growth and the main measure of macroeconomic growth – the GDP. The flow of the module is strongly attached to the changing economic regimes in Europe which happened half-chronologically, half-geography based. These begin with the first globalisation and implementation of the classical economic thought in the 1800s and then run through the collapse of the laissez-faire system during WWI, the formation of the Keynesian ideas of active involvement of the government in the economy, their success and failure in the post WW2 Europe, the turn back to deregulation and the modern approach of active government intervention.

On the parallel side, the course covers the two distinctive and radical economic regimes – the right-wing authoritarian one and the centrally planned Communist one. As the economic regimes are connected to the respective economic theories and thinkers, the course touches on them in each topic as well. Each economic event is evaluated through the lens of income per capita – whether in the short- or long-term an average citizen benefited or lost from the change implemented or sustained. And whether the lessons learned helped governments achieve better results in the following years. The course summarises the lead-up and reasons for the current macroeconomic thought. It gives the reader a comprehensive understanding of how the 150 years of European economic integration-disintegration and economic regime changes created the macroeconomic thought we have today. The module is containing theoretical lectures, reading papers and their presentations, and a final exam.
