Thursday, November 8, 2018, 4:30pm to 5:45pm


Littauer Center, 1805 Cambridge St, Hansen-Mason Room (3rd floor lounge)
This week's presenter: Elhanan Helpman, Harvard University

All interested faculty and students are invited to attend. Co-sponsored by FAS and IQSS, the Program on Political Economy (PE) supports research-related activities that integrate the study of economics and politics, whether by studying economic behavior in the political process or political behavior in the marketplace. In general, positive political economy is concerned with showing how observed differences among institutions affect political and economic outcomes in various social, economic, and political systems and how the institutions themselves change and develop in response to individual and collective beliefs, preferences, and strategies.
