Political Economy III: Social Choice and Voting Models (MECS 540-3)

I am teaching MECS 540-3 in Spring 2020. This course (previously called MECS 466-0) is part of Political Economy sequence and is about various aspects of collective decision-making, both on the micro level (how people aggregate of information and preferences through voting) and on the big picture level (how societies choose institutions to live under). We will briefly review some classical results from social choice, and find limitations of the cooperative approach. We then look at strategic behavior in collective decision-making: voting over binary agendas, and legislative bargaining. The second big topic is elections, where we plan to talk about all aspects – decisions whether and how to vote, whether to run, and how to campaign. The last big topic is institutions. We will talk about revolutions and coup d’états, how countries democratize, when and why. Ultimately, we will study models of forward-looking behavior in collective decision-making and dynamics of institutions.
