Seminar in Comparative Politics:


This course is a survey of contemporary research into comparative political economy. We will explore whether systematic differences in economic policy and macroeconomic outcomes follow from the workings of democratic accountability and from alternative constitutional and societal arrangements within democratic regimes. We also consider whether democratic regimes can continue to thrive under globalization given the alarming rise in within-country economic inequality over the past few decades. More generally, we will be interested in understanding how parties, elections, and the varied institutional designs of modern democracies mediate the relationship between political conflict, on the one hand, and economic growth and redistribution, on the other.
