Obiettivi formativi

This module introduces recent developments of Critical Political Economy.
Throughout the reading of leading theorists, we will contrast the
invariants of capitalism with the specificities of neoliberalism, crisis
dynamics and the politico-institutional unfolding of globalizations. Some
insights about social, political and ecological contradictions and the
mutation of productive forces will also be discussed.

Modalità di verifica dell'apprendimento


The sessions are dedicated to the presentation and
discussion of a selection of books’ extracts and articles.
Reading the texts in bold is required, reading more is
better. Because the course will not allow to explore the
details of the texts, it is a pre-condition to engage with the
arguments. There are two options for the evaluation:
1. The presentation during one course of one text from the
Syllabus in 15 min followed by a brief written critical
summary (3/4 pages). If you’re interested, think about
it ahead of the first course.
or
2. A brief essay (3/4 pages) based on the presentation of
one original stylized fact (a graph) designed to
corroborate (or challenge) one theoretical insight
discussed in the course. The essay should explicit the
motivations, the technicalities of the elaboration of the
stylized fact and a discussion of its interpretation.
