Course Syllabus

Are developing countries systematically disadvantaged in the global economy? Are international institutions effective in dealing with contemporary global economic issues. Do multinational corporations have a positive impact on the host countries they invest in, or a negative one? This class is an introduction to international political economy (IPE), which examines the interaction between economics and politics (both domestic and international) in order to gain insight into the workings of global trade, finance, and investment.
