Political economy is the study of production and trade and their relations with law, custom and government as well as with the distribution of national income and wealth. Political economy as a discipline originated in moral philosophy in the 18th century and sought to explore the administration of states' wealth, with "political" signifying the Greek word polity and "economy" signifying the Greek word "okonomie" or "household management". The earliest works of political economy are most often attributed to British scholars like Adam Smith, Thomas Malthus and David Ricardo, although the case is sometimes made that the still earlier works of the French physiocrats constitute the true beginnings of the discipline. In the late 19th century, the term "economics" gradually began to replace the term "political economy" with the rise of mathematical modelling coinciding with the publication of an influential textbook by Alfred Marshall in 1890. Earlier, William Stanley Jevons, a proponent of mathematical methods applied to the subject, advocated economics for brevity and with the hope of the term becoming "the recognised name of a science". Citation measurement metrics from Google Ngram Viewer indicate that use of the term "economics" began to overshadow "political economy" around roughly 1910, becoming the preferred term for the discipline by 1920. Today, the term "economics" usually refers to the narrow study of the economy absent other political and social considerations while the term "political economy" represents a distinct and competing approach. Political economy, where it is not used as a synonym for economics, may refer to very different things. From an academic standpoint, the term may reference Marxian analysis, applied public choice approaches emanating from the Chicago school and the Virginia school. In common parlance, "political economy" may simply refer to the advice given by economists to the government or public on general economic policy or on specific economic proposals developed by political scientists. A rapidly growing mainstream literature from the 1970s has expanded beyond the model of economic policy in which planners maximize utility of a representative individual toward examining how political forces affect the choice of economic policies, especially as to distributional conflicts and political institutions. It is available as a stand-alone area of study in certain colleges and universities. International political economy (IPE) an interdisciplinary field comprising approaches to the actions of various actors. In the United States, these approaches are associated with the journal International Organization, which in the 1970s became the leading journal of IPE under the editorship of Robert Keohane, Peter J. Katzenstein and Stephen Krasner. They are also associated with the journal The Review of International Political Economy. There also is a more critical school of IPE, inspired by thinkers such as Antonio Gramsci and Karl Polanyi; two major figures are Matthew Watson and Robert W. Cox. The use of a political economy approach by anthropologists, sociologists, and geographers used in reference to the regimes of politics or economic values that emerge primarily at the level of states or regional governance, but also within smaller social groups and social networks. Because these regimes influence and are influenced by the organization of both social and economic capital, the analysis of dimensions lacking a standard economic value (e.g. the political economy of language, of gender, or of religion) often draws on concepts used in Marxian critiques of capital. Such approaches expand on neo-Marxian scholarship related to development and underdevelopment postulated by André Gunder Frank and Immanuel Wallerstein. Historians have employed political economy to explore the ways in the past that persons and groups with common economic interests have used politics to effect changes beneficial to their interests. Political economy and law is a recent attempt within legal scholarship to engage explicitly with political economy literature. In the 1920s and 1930s, legal realists (e.g. Robert Hale) and intellectuals (e.g. John Commons) engaged themes related to political economy. In the second half of the 20th century, lawyers associated with the Chicago School incorporated certain intellectual traditions from economics. However, since the crisis in 2007 legal scholars especially related to international law, have turned to more explicitly engage with the debates, methodology and various themes within political economy texts. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_economy

What will be the growth of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) or the competitiveness of China, United States, and Vietnam in the next 3, 5 or 10 years? Despite this kind of questions has a large societal impact and an extreme value for economic policy making, providing a scientific basis for economic predictability is still a very challenging problem. Recent results of a new branch—Economic Complexity—have set the basis for a framework to approach such a challenge and to provide new perspectives to cast economic prediction into the conceptual scheme of forecasting the evolution of a dynamical system as in the case of weather dynamics. A recently introduced non-monetary metrics for country competitiveness (fitness) allows for quantifying the hidden growth potential of countries by the means of the comparison of this measure for intangible assets with monetary figures, such as GDP per capita. This comparison defines the fitness-income plane where we observe that country dynamics presents strongly heterogeneous patterns of evolution. The flow in some zones is found to be laminar while in others a chaotic behavior is instead observed. These two regimes correspond to very different predictability features for the evolution of countries: in the former regime, we find strong predictable pattern while the latter scenario exhibits a very low predictability. In such a framework, regressions, the usual tool used in economics, are no more the appropriate strategy to deal with such a heterogeneous scenario and new concepts, borrowed from dynamical systems theory, are mandatory. We therefore propose a data-driven method—the selective predictability scheme—in which we adopt a strategy similar to the methods of analogues, firstly introduced by Lorenz, to assess future evolution of countries.

Opaque calculations are often at the heart of economic policymaking. To make economic policy analysis more transparent, accessible, and collaborative, scholars at AEI’s Open Source Policy Center and open source contributors have developed a new web application, TaxBrain, to study the effects of individual income and payroll tax policy reforms using open source economic simulation models. Join AEI for a reception with several of the project’s core open source contributors. OSPC Managing Director Matt Jensen will describe the new open source approach to policy analysis, after which we invite you to try TaxBrain and get to know the project contributors. To start thinking about how modeling can improve government transparency, read Jensen’s overview of OSPC and The Wall Street Journal’s take in their recent editorial.

Associate Professor, Economics and Statistics; Ph.D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology Expertise: econometrics, big data, machine learning, energy and environmental economics, health economics, public policy Matthew Harding is an econometrician who develops cutting edge statistical methods for the analysis of big data to answer crucial economic questions related to individual consumption and choices in areas such as health and energy. As a data scientist, he focuses on the analysis of “deep data” - large and information-rich data sets derived from many seemingly unrelated sources but linked across individuals to provide novel behavioral insights. He is particularly interested in the role technology and automation play in inducing behavior change and helping individuals live happier and healthier lives. At the same time, his research emphasizes solutions for achieving triple-win strategies - solutions that not only benefit individual consumers, but are also profitable for firms and have a large positive impact on society at large. He designs and evaluates large scale field experiments in collaboration with industry leaders to measure the individual and social consequences of individual choices and the extent to which big data can be used to improve choices and lead to more accurate and targeted programs and products. His research relies on terabyte sized data sets of individual choices and consumption profiles to build a comprehensive framework for understanding economic behavior and develop new strategies for achieving triple-win solutions. His work has been published in the Journal of Econometrics, American Economic Journal, and The Annals of Applied Probability, to name a few. Harding received his undergraduate degree from the University College of London, his master’s from the University of Oxford, and his Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He comes to UCI following previous faculty positions at Duke University and Stanford University. He’s excited to join the UCI faculty and interact with scholars across different disciplines - engineering, statistics, economics - to study how machine learning, artificial intelligence and economics can work together to create new methods and insights for global problems.

This talk explores the major environmental issues of global warming, air pollution, and energy insecurity and outlines a plan to solve them. Mark Z. Jacobson, director of the Atmosphere/Energy Program at Stanford University, considers the many facets of viable wind, water, and sunlight energy production and concludes that it could fully—and economically—power the world in the next 20 to 40 years. Jacobson and his team at Stanford University have pioneered new atmospheric research and analysis techniques that give a picture of the current state of the atmosphere, show the effects of pollution from aerosols, ethanol, agriculture, and ultraviolet radiation, and predict how these pollutants might affect the climate.

Heilbroner Memorial Lecture Presents: Women's Work and the Limits of Capitalism: A Feminist Analysis of the Current Crisis Nancy Folbre, economist and contributor to the New York Times "Economix" Blog, will join The New School to present SCEPA's annual Robert Heilbroner Memorial Lecture on the Future of Capitalism. Folbre is a professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, winner of a MacArthur"genius" grant, and associate editor of the journal Feminist Economics. Her work focuses onthe interface between feminist theory and political economy, with a particular interest in caring labor and other forms of non-market work. Women now represent almost half of all workers on non-agricultural payrolls, concentrated in paid care industries such as health, education, and social services. Even full-time women wage earners devote significant amounts of time to unpaid care work in their households and communities. Women's specialization in both paid and unpaid care stabilizes and subsidizes the market economy even as it reproduces gender inequality. Recent efforts to measure and assign a value to care work suggest that economists have fundamentally misinterpreted trends in both the level and the distribution of economic well-being, overstating economic growth and understating trends toward increased inequality. A feminist analysis of care work has important implications for understanding both conservative attacks on the "nanny state" and the global unemployment crisis. The growing need for public provision of care services outside the home, combined with the difficulty of outsourcing these services to low-wage countries, means that "women's jobs" are growing in relative importance within the U.S. economy. Women and men have much to gain from public investments that could increase both the quantity and the quality of these jobs.

http://www.ischool.berkeley.edu/newsandevents/events/20130306gans Speaker: Joshua Gans Wednesday, March 6, 2013, 4:10 pm - 5:30 pm 202 South Hall, UC Berkeley In this paper, we explore the hypothesis that an important force behind the collapse in advertising revenue experienced by newspapers over the past decade is the greater consumer switching facilitated by online consumption of news. We introduce a model of the market for advertising on news media outlets whereby news outlets are modeled as competing two-sided platforms bringing together heterogeneous, partially multi-homing consumers with advertisers with heterogeneous valuations for reaching consumers. A key feature of our model is that the multi-homing behavior of the advertisers is determined endogenously. The presence of switching consumers means that, in the absence of perfect technologies for tracking the ads seen by consumers, advertisers purchase wasted impressions: they reach the same consumer too many times. This has subtle effects on the equilibrium outcomes in the advertising market. One consequence is that multi-homing on the part of advertisers is heterogeneous: high-value advertisers multi-home, while low-value advertisers single-home. We characterize the impact of greater consumer switching on outlet profits as well as the impact of technologies that track consumers both within and across outlets on those profits. Somewhat surprisingly, superior tracking technologies may not always increase outlet profits, even when they increase efficiency. In extensions to the baseline model, we show that when outlets that show few or ineffective ads (e.g. blogs) attract readers from traditional outlets, the losses are at least partially offset by an increase in ad prices. Introducing a paywall does not just diminish readership, but it furthermore reduce advertising prices (and leads to increases in advertising prices on competing outlets.

What is ECONOMIC JUSTICE? What does ECONOMIC JUSTICE mean? ECONOMIC JUSTICE meaning - ECONOMIC JUSTICE definition - ECONOMIC JUSTICE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Justice in economics is a subcategory of welfare economics with models frequently representing the ethical-social requirements of a given theory, whether "in the large", as of a just social order, or "in the small", as in the equity of "how institutions distribute specific benefits and burdens". That theory may or may not elicit acceptance. In the Journal of Economic Literature classification codes 'justice' is scrolled to at JEL: D63, wedged on the same line between 'Equity' and 'Inequality' along with 'Other Normative Criteria and Measurement'. Categories above and below the line are Externalities and Altruism. Some ideas about justice and ethics overlap with the origins of economic thought, often as to distributive justice and sometimes as to Marxian analysis. The subject is a topic of normative economics and philosophy and economics. In early welfare economics, where mentioned, 'justice' was little distinguished from maximization of all individual utility functions or a social welfare function. As to the latter, Paul Samuelson (1947), expanding on work of Abram Bergson, represents a social welfare function in general terms as any ethical belief system required to order any (hypothetically feasible) social states for the entire society as "better than", "worse than", or "indifferent to" each other. Kenneth Arrow (1963) showed a difficulty of trying to extend a social welfare function consistently across different hypothetical ordinal utility functions even apart from justice. Utility maximization survives, even with the rise of ordinal-utility/Pareto theory, as an ethical basis for economic-policy judgments in the wealth-maximization criterion invoked in law and economics. Amartya Sen (1970), Kenneth Arrow (1983), Serge-Christophe Kolm (1969, 1996, 2000), and others have considered ways in which utilitarianism as an approach to justice is constrained or challenged by independent claims of equality in the distribution of primary goods, liberty, entitlements, opportunity, exclusion of antisocial preferences, possible capabilities, and fairness as non-envy plus Pareto efficiency. Alternate approaches have treated combining concern for the worst off with economic efficiency, the notion of personal responsibility and (de)merits of leveling individual benefits downward, claims of intergenerational justice, and other non-welfarist/Pareto approaches. Justice is a subarea of social choice theory, for example as to extended sympathy, and more generally in the work of Arrow, Sen, and others. A broad reinterpretation of justice from the perspective of game theory, social contract theory, and evolutionary naturalism is found in works of Ken Binmore (1994, 1998, 2004) and others. Arguments on fairness as an aspect of justice have been invoked to explain a wide range of behavioral and theoretical applications,supplementing earlier emphasis on economic efficiency (Konow, 2003).

Presented by METRANS Transportation Center as part of the Transportation Research Seminar Series. Over the past 20 years, California has made substantial investments in intra-metropolitan passenger rail infrastructure, expanding existing systems and building new ones. According to advocates of New Urbanism, such investment should encourage the growth of mixed-use transit-oriented development, defined as a high-density mix of residential and commercial uses within walking distance of rail stations. Little research to date has examined whether rail investment stimulates retail activity, which is a key component of mixed-use development. In this seminar, we examine whether the opening of new rail stations across California's four largest metropolitan areas has affected retail employment within one-quarter mile of the stations, compared to similar neighborhoods around older stations or with no rail stations. Jenny Schuetz is an Assistant Professor in the Price School of Public Policy at the University of Southern California. Her primary research interests are urban and real estate economics, local public finance, and housing policy. Her research has been published in a variety of journals, including Regional Science and Urban Economics, the Journal of Housing Economics, Real Estate Economics, the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, and Urban Studies.

Alondra Nelson will discuss her book The Social Life of DNA on how claims about ancestry are marshalled together with genetic analysis in a range of social ventures. The use of genetic ancestry testing in the United States has grown exponentially since its emergence about fifteen years ago. In this same period, U.S. colleges and universities have increasingly uncovered and confronted their ties to the history of racial slavery. Although genetic ancestry tests are principally sought to provide genealogical information, these data have been marshalled into a wider range of social ventures, including the politics of remembrance and reconciliation. In this presentation, Alondra Nelson examines the recent use of genetic ancestry testing by the descendants of nearly three hundred enslaved men and women owned by Georgetown University, whom the institution’s Jesuit stewards sold to Southern plantations in 1838 in order to secure its solvency. The case of the GU 272 will be explored as a “reconciliation project”—a social endeavour in which DNA analysis is put to the use of repairing historic injury. Alondra Nelson (@alondra) is President of the Social Science Research Council. She is also Professor of Sociology at Columbia University, where she served as the inaugural Dean of Social Science. A scholar of science, medicine, and social inequality, her recent books include The Social Life of DNA: Race, Reparations, and Reconciliation after the Genome and Body and Soul: The Black Panther Party and the Fight Against Medical Discrimination. She is Chair of the American Sociological Association Section on Science, Knowledge, and Technology and is an elected member of the Sociological Research Associations. Nelson received her BA from the University of California at San Diego, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. She earned her PhD from New York University in 2003. Nigel Dodd is a professor of sociology at the London School of Economics, and Editor-in-Chief of the British Journal of Sociology. This event is The British Journal of Sociology Annual Lecture.

Herland Report TV (HTV): "What happened in the US was the liberal-Left wing class ceased to represent the working class against the capitalist exploit employer. They created a new victim group and a new exploiter: the white heterosexual male", says Dr. Paul Craig Roberts. SUBSCRIBE to The Herland Report TV Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/HanneNabintuHerland?sub_confirmation=1 Dr. Roberts is chairman of The Institute for Political Economy, former editor of Wall Street Journal and a well-known author of many books. He is awarded the Treasury Department’s Meritorious Service Award for “his outstanding contributions to the formulation of United States economic policy. "The whole notion of class conflict has been replaced by gender conflict, race conflict, sexual preference conflict. The Liberal-Left has created a new victim group and a new exploiter. This exploiter is now "the white heterosexual male". The new victim class is everyone else. It’s the women, the blacks, the Hispanics, the homosexuals. Anybody but the white heterosexual male." "We now have a situation in which you have new forms of diversity, such as homosexuals, straight, gender differences, racial differences and these have taken the place of the class difference. So, the whole thing has been turned around." "With the new victim group being white heterosexual males who are defenseless and not protected by quotas, prohibitions against hate speech or hate crimes, you can say anything about a white heterosexual male. Which is peculiar if they are the dominant group. But you can’t say the slightest thing about blacks, or a homosexuals or women." "This has the population in each other’s throats. It used to be the capitalist worker against the capitalist owner. Not it is everybody against everybody, and we get more and more diversity." "This is not a framework for a peaceful society. It is not a framework for a society that can come together and deal with problems as a collective society." "It’s not a society that can exercise constraint over its government because its split and not united. Therefore, it’s very easy for the very powerful interest groups to dominate. It becomes almost impossible to constraint the powers of government."

https://sites.duke.edu/intrope/ COURSE OVERVIEW: Introduction to Political Economy is a self-contained and nontechnical overview of the intellectual history of political economy, the logic of microeconomics, and the definitions used in macroeconomics. It introduces the notion of a political economy, emphasizing the moral and ethical problems that markets solve, and fail to solve. LECTURE OVERVIEW: 1. The argument for capitalism and entrepreneurship is not greed, but benefits to consumers. Markets rely on a system called "consumer sovereignty." 2. The story of Soichiro Honda, and his struggles with bureaucracy. Innovation requires many people working on different things, and many failures. 3. Definitions: Opportunity Cost, Rents, Profits, and Rent-Seeking 4. The distinction between profit-seeking and rent-seeking is complicated, but it is socially important. Government has to be careful to restrict rent-seeking opportunities, because private markets can't tell the difference! 5. But the incentives of the state are wrong, and the state often fails. Many states actually specialize in rent-extraction. Examples--"mud farmers" and castles along the Rhine River in Germany, are considered. 6. The key problem: Rent seeking causes a loss of consumer surplus from exchanges that do not take place. Unseen, hard to measure. Foregone improvements in growth, prosperity and use of goods. There is also the dissipation of resources in war over right to charge tolls, so that spawns competition over rights to control access to "overfishing" the resource. 7. A summary: Exchange creates value, New products must pass profit test. But accounting profits are both rents and profits. Problem: rent-seeking destroys value in pursuit of transfers, which are at best neutral. Creating rents is "profitable" for authority that can extract transfers in exchange.

Since China's one-child policy was put in place in 1979, the government has managed to avert some 400 million births. While the policy has helped curb population growth and accelerate the pace of modernization in the country, it has also given rise to another major problem - an acutely lopsided or uneven gender ratios. There's currently just too many men than women in the country. By 2020, it’s estimated that there'll be 40 million more men than women in the country, leaving at least 12 to 15% of young adult men with no hopes of marrying. How did China get itself into such a predicament? How will the gender imbalance impact China's economic prosperity and social unity if the problem is not addressed? Has it done enough to reverse the trend? Insight investigates.
