INTERNATIONAL HISTORY OF ECONOMIC POLICY
Semester : Autumn Number of hours : 24 Language of tuition : English
Teachers : Jacek ROSTOWSKI (Professeur). Pedagogical Format : Lecture alone Course validation : A 3,000-word essay, on a subject to be chosen by each student (50% of total mark) ; - A 2-hour take-home ﬁnal exam (50% of total mark). Pedagogical Method : Although the course is formally a lecture course, I intend it to be as "interactive" as possible, with students encouraged to ask questions, make comments and discuss what the lecturer has said. I may also ask some students to prepare brief reports on a topic which is important, but subsidiary, to the main line of the lectures. Course Description : The course breaks with the standard historical approach to the analysis of economics and economic policy. This allows the course to achieve three aims : (1) make the discussion of economic ideas less abstract, setting them in the context of the real economic problems policy-makers had to face at the time ; (2) highlight the interaction of political and economic considerations that policy-makers have to consider ; and (3) show how much the relative importance of different economic problems has ﬂuctuated over the decades. The course covers economic policy during four main periods : pre-WWI liberalism ; the rise of non-market and anti-market policies in the 1920s, 1930s and during WWII ; the post-war Keynesian and Communist stabilisations and their collapse ; the new liberal "great moderation" and its collapse. It also covers ﬁve main complexes of policy problems which recur over the four historical periods : depression and secular stagnation, private and non-private property regimes, inﬂations and hyper-inﬂations, command and war economics, free trade and protectionism.

Course Description : The purpose of this course is to discuss and to increase our understanding of the manner in which international negotiations take place, and the purpose they are designed to achieve. In this context, several aspects of international negotiations are scrutinized. First, this course explores the process of international negotiation. It also highlights the legal framework and context of international economic negotiation. The course then discusses various themes illustrated by case studies, including : negotiating human rights and ethics in international economic transactions ; relationship between war and negotiation ; the politics and negotiation of genetically modiﬁed organisms ; negotiations and politics of nuclear energy.
