PAI680.1 Political Economy

Taught in Spanish at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica and may not be offered every semester. The purpose of this course is to examine and understand the evolution of the political institutions and their effects on the economy. Accordingly, we divide the course into three parts. First, we will examine the debates and the basic theories in order to understand and analyze problems in political economy. Then, we will study how institutions (political, economic, domestic) affect the type of economic development of a country. Finally, we will look at economic policy through an analysis of sectors, examining for example poverty and industrialization, the environment, education, and health systems. (UC code: ICP 5702)
