COMPARATIVE POLITICAL ECONOMY OF DEVELOPMENT
6 credits during the 2nd year of 8769 News, Media and Publishing (LM-19) GENOVA
The course aims at introducing students to the recent research, both theoretical and empirical, in economics and other social sciences, concerning the political causes of the success, or failure, of the states. In particular, we will focus the attention on the interaction between political and economic institutions and development, emphasizing: how the states’ economic performance depends on their institutions, and the endogenous emergence of the latter as the outcome of an underlying distributive conflict within the society.
Ricevimento: After lesson and by appointment.
