The Politics of Inequality
GOVT 382
Spring 2016 not offered

The unequal distribution of income and assets has been arguably the most prominent issue in historical and contemporary politics. In this course, we will explore the politics surrounding economic inequality around the world. We will discuss how inequality influences political participation in democracies and dictatorships, the prospects for democratic transition/consolidation, and economic growth. We will also examine when and how political institutions can mitigate negative aspects of inequality.
