The Politics of Economics

Description: Economics affects politics, politics affects economics, and there is politics internal to economics. The Politics of Economics will bring different disciplinary angles together for a discussion of these aspects of the politics-economics relation, and their normative and epistemic consequences.

Economics has been criticised from many angles. The Politics of Economics will not rehash these criticisms but will instead examine the ways in which politics and economics have been and are by necessity entwined in order to think about how we can and should structure economic advice.
