Harvard /MIT Seminar on Positive Political Economy
Location: Room K354, 1737 Cambridge St. CGIS Knafel Building, 1737 Cambridge St. Cambridge, MA 02138
The MIT Political Science Department and The Institute for Quantitative Social Science at Harvard University are sponsoring a seminar on formal and quantitative political research. The Program on Positive Political Economy (PPE) 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. All interested faculty and students are invited to attend. *Fall PPE Lectures are held at MIT.
