The Workshop in Political Economy is organized around rational choice and game theoretic approaches to the study of politics and economics, broadly construed. Workshop topics include positive analysis of political, economic and social behavior, as well as normative models of public choice, experimental tests, and philosophical critiques. We also expect some of the work presented to focus on empirical and policy applications of political economy models. Thus the workshop is inherently interdisciplinary - combining economic methodology with political science questions, and building political considerations into economic analysis. Workshop sessions will apply these combinations to a broad range of social science issues and substantive topics. The Political Economy Workshop is jointly sponsored by Chicago Harris and the Departments of Economics and Political Science. The workshop meets in Room 140B at Chicago Harris on Thursdays from 12:00-1:15 PM. The faculty organizer is Pablo Montagnes.
