SOCY 1073 States, Markets, and Bodies (Fall: 3 )
An introduction to the Political Economy this course will introduce students to theories, concepts and tools for studying relations between states and markets that affects the structure of power relationships. Taking a global approach we will examine the different forms of state repression, the consequences of a neoliberal and decentralized global market, and its affects on individual people/workers. This course is motivated by three inter-related questions: (1) What is the appropriate role of the government in the economy? (2) How should states govern its citizens? (3) What is the role of individuals who make up civil society?
