Economics and Politics: Introduction to the Literature and Basic Modeling of Political Macroeconomics
AbstractThis is a survey of the literature linking economics and politics. In the introduction, I explain why it is necessary to study these issues as a separate course in economics. I then proceed to analyze voting models, the political business cycle, international and foreign policy issues. The survey relies on, takes excerpts from and paraphrases much of the work put forth Alesina (1988) and others.
