INTERNATIONAL POLITICAL ECONOMY OF DEVELOPING COUNTRIES, 4 pts, GU4863
IPE OF DEVELOPING COUNTRI
This course examines how domestic and international politics inﬂuence the economic policies of developing countries. We will critically evaluate diﬀerent theoretical debates related to foreign economic policymaking in emerging markets, and introduce chief methodological approaches used in contemporary analyses. We will focus attention on diﬀerent types of cross-border ﬂows: the ﬂow of goods (trade policy), the ﬂow of people (immigration policy), the ﬂow and location of production (foreign investment policy), the ﬂow of capital (ﬁnancial and monetary policy), and the ﬂow of pollution (environment policy). In the process, we will address several themes that are central to understanding the politics of economic policymaking in emerging economies, including, the legacies of colonialism, trade protectionism and liberalization, globalization and the race to the bottom, the relationship between economic policy and culture, and development and redistribution. There will be an emphasis on applying concepts through the analysis of policy-relevant case studies designed for this course.
