International Political Economy
GOVT 329
Spring 2021
Section: 01  

How do domestic and international politics influence the economic relations between states, and vice-versa? This course considers the role that governments and institutions play in the movement of goods, money, and people across borders. Sometimes political actors can intervene to improve the efficiency or equity of international markets, but sometimes self-interest can give rise to worse outcomes. This course explores topics such as globalization, trade, monetary relations, international institutions, debt, foreign direct investment, development, international migration, and the environment. Emphasis will be on understanding current events, including the recent trade war and Brexit.
