This subject introduces you to Political Economy and its theoretical perspectives. You will examine the interaction between politics and economics in global relations, from the origins of the modern world economy through to the Bretton Woods system and the emergence of the current transnational global economy. You will explore key issues in the field of political economy such as global monetary and trade relations, foreign investment flows, the nature and role of multinational corporations as well as global financial institutions. The subject will provide you with an opportunity to debate on the political effects of these economic developments, and it will equip you with tools to analyse global challenges including poverty, labour migration, environment, and resource politics.
