IPEC 328 - Pol Econ Inequality & Redistri
This course examines the politics of income distribution and redistribution in the US and other advanced democracies. It considers the effects of economic change, policies and institutions in creating or reducing inequality in advanced democracies, as well as the reciprocal effects of inequality on political activity, policy choices and western societies more generally. The course covers both seminal contributions to the study of (re)distribution as well as cutting-edge empirical work on the determinants and effects of inequality. For students writing theses, this course will enable learning of research methods and identification of research topics.
