7 May 2009: Lecture 23, The End of International Political Economy.

5 May 2009: Lecture 22, Globalization.

Over the last week or so, I’ve come across several interesting articless, &c. There’s also a very interesting interview with Barry Eichengreen in the Berkeley series “Conversations with History.”

And a number of you have continued on the discussion board also posting things. I encourage you all to follow up those links as well. (Great posts, ladies & gents!)

So, this might provide interesting summer reading and listening.

I’m sure a lot of you are curious how to insert the £–because, like me, you’re always using the £ as your standard currency example. Here’s how to do it:

Mac: Option + 3

Windows: ALT key then press 0 1 6 3

I’ve had mixed luck with the latter. (Typical M$ requires several extra keystrokes for no good reason!)

Here is a link to other useful shortcuts for the :

If you have trouble with that second link, you can access the material through Eres.
