PSCI 229 Spring 2013 Global Political Economy

This course offers a broad overview of global political economy, the study of how international economic relations are influenced by politics and, in turn, how economics influences politics. Students will learn frameworks for analyzing the global politics of economic resource allocation, consumption, and distribution. Focus will be placed on the interconnectivity between states and markets, power and wealth, and how these affect policy decisions. Topics covered include the WTO, money, financial crisis and innovation, debt, energy, foreign aid, and other forms of globalization. Throughout the course we will examine contemporary problems that threaten the viability of the liberal international economic order and, in conclusion, assess its future in light of rising powers and emerging economies.
