Prereq: Permission of instructor
The goal of this class is to explore some classic themes in political economy, as well as to delve into new and emerging areas of innovative scholarship. The readings will range widely across both developed and developing countries. The course serves both to help students prepare for MIT’s political economy field exam, and as a forum in which students can explore potential research projects.
As is the tradition with this class, much of the reading is organized by students in consultation with the instructor. The readings thus vary from year to year, depending on class composition and student interest.
