Seminar in American Politics: Money in American Politics

POL 420

Info tab content
Did lobbying corrupt the implementation of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) intended to provide financial relief to small businesses during the COVID-19 crisis? Did campaign contributions from the real estate industry exacerbate housing bubbles in the early 2000s, leading to the eventual mortgage default crisis in 2008-09? This course will help students critically assess claims made about the role of money in American politics in public discourse and policy debates. Students will learn about cutting-edge social science research, and interact with guest speakers in government, non-profits, and the private sector where feasible.
