Political economics takes a formal approach to collective decisions and political institutions. This course gives an overview of the field by discussing its analytical tools and recent research frontiers. We will start by studying the general problem of social choice and collective decisions, then analyze representative democracies as principal-agent problems. Based on this framework, we will investigate alternative political institutions and the organization of governments.
