LSE course GV227The politics of economic policy (Undergraduate class teacher)

LSE course GV225Public choice and politics (Undergraduate class teacher)
In my view one of the most difficult things an undergraduate, or indeed any political scientist, can do is to take rational choice theory and, instead of making it ever more refined and theoretical, have a broad yet thorough look at where it fits into the real business of politics and public policy. The design of this course allows the teachers and students to do just that. It can be very hard work and sometimes classes can fall flat on their faces but when it flies, it flies. And when it doesn’t, the class can always buckle down and grind its way through the theory.
