How can Avengers: Infinity War help us better understand globalization?

Economist Tyler Cowen and political scientist Ian Bremmer examine the four different stages of globalization, and what each stage has meant for the world. The progressively faster movement of goods, services, and information has had enormous effects on how our planet operates. In the next video, Tyler and Ian will explain a fundamental concept of understanding globalization: creative destruction.

About the series:
Globalization and Robots: The Future of Work
Globalization and robots dominate the discussion of jobs, politics, and more. We’re donning our scuba gear and diving in deep to better understand where the economy is going, how students should navigate it, and how these forces shape our society.

A topic of this magnitude requires a bit more firepower than usual. That’s why we’ve partnered with Eurasia Group Foundation and enlisted two intellectual wizards to help us out: Ian Bremmer, expert political scientist, bestselling author, and Twitter extraordinaire; and MRU’s own Tyler Cowen, expert economist, bestselling author, and iron man of blogging. They’ll lead you on a rollicking adventure that explores the rise of the Avengers, the fall of Kodak, and a graph so famous it has its own mascot!
