Dani Rodrik and Roberto Unger teach “Political Economy After the Crisis”:
This course will explore alternative ways of thinking about contemporary market economies and their reconstruction. It will do so by addressing three connected themes: the worldwide financial and economic crisis and the response to it, the effort to advance socially inclusive economic growth in richer as well as in poorer countries, and the past, present, and future of globalization. In addressing these themes, it will ask what economics is and should become. For 2011-2012, the central topic will be crisis and the struggle for recovery as provocations to insight and as opportunities for reform.
