This course is designed to provide an introductory overview about the ways in which government and business interact with each other in capitalist economies. It addresses the key concepts and perspectives in political economy and illuminates them through several cases in various policy areas. In particular, the course examines: (1) how government and business seek to influence each other via institutional and non-institutional means; (2) how government policies affect the competitive positions of individual firms and industries and how firms and industries compete to influence such policies; (3) the ways in which government policies affect economic growth and the ways in which governments seek to achieve a variety of non-economic objectives through such economic policies; and (4) how to define local economic interest in an increasingly integrated global economy.
