Economics and politics of the knowledge economy

The seminar has two main goals: (a) provide you with a theoretical approach for analyzing the structure and evolution of economic and political systems; and (b) encourage you to think systematically and critically about the structure of social systems in the age of new information and communication technologies. In the course we ask how ICT is affecting intellectual property rights and transaction costs, and changing markets, economic organization, political processes, crime, and warfare.

This course is for 2nd year MIA and MPP students only.
