In the first half of the course we will cover material from the textbook [Persson & Tabellini 2000] according to the ability and interests of enrolled students, likely finishing about a third of the textbook. Outside of the textbook, we may cover Arrow's Impossibility Theorem and the Hotelling model of spatial competition. The second half of the course will consider a variety of topics in political economics, including collective choice, voters, politicians, legislature, lobbying and media.
