11.15- Minimal State / Maximum State 12.45 Quite paradoxical y, the development of market economy went
alongside an intensification of the intervention of State over economy. How did the State changed during the history? How did State differ in market and in planned economies?
11.15- Market and natural environment (part 1) 12.45 Modern economic development is based on environment control and
new forms of natural resources exploitation. The case of industrialization in the United States (ca. 1860-1950) underscores the relationship between resources and models of growth. Does resources endorsement determine development possibilities? Which elements do define different models of exploitation?
