This subject introduces students to Political Economy and its theoretical perspectives. It examines 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. Students 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 International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. The subject provides an opportunity for students to debate on the political effects of these economic developments, and equips students with tools to analyse global challenges including poverty, labour migration, environment, and resource politics.
