Political Economy

This course exposes students to the major paradigms in heterodox political economy through a set of economic topics that are central to these paradigms. Heterodox political economic paradigms include Marxist, post-keynesian, intuitional, and feminist approaches. We will use these various approaches to examine topics of particular interest to political economists including the historical rise of capitalism, workplace relations, poverty and income distribution, economic growth (accumulation) and crisis, financialization, globalization, development, gender, race, and ecological change.
