Skrócony opis:

The major focus of the course is on the role of institutions, as key determinants of the diversity of capitalism co-existing in the Western hemisphere. The course relies on a comparative analysis of economic performance within the triad of Europe, Japan, and the USA; at the same time it involves a comparison of economic performance and institutions within the European Union alone, and in particular between its old and new members, i.e. transition economies.

Pełny opis:

This course offers an interdisciplinary approach - it combines multiple perspectives including the micro- and macroeconomics, welfare economics, public finance and - in particular - the evolutionary economics and new institutional economics. The course provides a broad survey of some of the major economic debates today, focusing especially on the creation, evolution and reform of formal institutions. The course focuses above all on how social and political forces shaped the development of the economic policies aimed at securing economic growth and employment and of social policies aimed at providing social security, combating poverty, and affecting redistribution

In particular, the course objectives include the following:

1. to highlight the heterogeneous nature of capitalism (market economy) and discuss its legacy,

2. to discuss and analyze the importance of institutions as determinants of economic performance (vis-a-vis macroeconomic policy),

3. to get to know the idea of efficiency of institutions and strong links between efficiency and political economy issues,

4. to understand similarities and differences in existing taxonomies regarding varieties (models) of capitalism, today and in the past,

5. to emphasize the peculiar nature of systemic transformation that - inter alia - results in a limited applicability of standard institutional frameworks in transition countries,

6. to discuss and outline the emerging varieties of capitalism in former socialist countries.
