Political Economy
ECON 124
Spring 2007 not offered

Economic and political processes are intertwined in that political institutions have an impact on economic outcomes and vice versa. This course is a survey of some of the important topics in political economy. Some of the questions that will be addressed with the help of country-studies are: Do democratic institutions and greater political freedom result in higher economic growth? Is the size of government determined by political decentralization and federalism? What is the role played by the different constituents in shaping societies' economic priorities? Do interest groups weigh economic outcomes in their favor?
