Political Economy Reading Program

Fall 2022  Spring 2022

International Economics and Policy — Fall 2022

The theme for the fall 2022 Political Economy Reading Program is International Economics and Policy. Participants will explore debates about globalization, foreign aid, and U.S. military intervention. What are the benefits and drawbacks of globalization? What is the best immigration policy? How involved should the U.S. be in foreign affairs? Participants will discuss these questions and more throughout the program semester.

Students will read and discuss books and articles by Bryan Caplan, Dani Rodrik, Christopher Coyne, Paul Krugman, and others.

Participants will also attend a summit hosted at Texas Tech University with program participants from Angelo State University. The summit will feature formal remarks from Christopher Coyne, Professor of Economics at George Mason University and Jamie Bologna Pavlik, Associate Professor of Agricultural and Applied Economics at Texas Tech. Participants will engage in interactive discussion groups on issues related to the program theme.

The schedule of readings and topics of discussion will be shared with participants and posted on this page as that information becomes available.
