Politics through the Lens of Economics (Introduction to Political Economics)

Project Seminar in English
An undergraduate class for students to improve their oral communication skills in English by discussing two books in development economics: Poor Economics and Why Nations Fail.

I’ve been teaching this course for PhD students at Stockholm University and Stockholm School of Economics since 2010. It’s been quite popular to the extent that students from Uppsala, Gothenburg and even Oslo attended.

I’ve been teaching the 2nd year PhD course on development economics for students enrolled in Stockholm University and Stockholm School of Economics since 2008, joint with Jakob Svensson, Tessa Bold, Andreas Madestam, and Konrad Burchardi.

This is a set of slides for an one-off 90-minute lecture that I gave to the second year master students of economics at Stockholm University on October 27, 2008. Technical details are kept at minimum.
