The Convergence of Business & Public Administration in the Nation's Economy
PADM-GP.2159, 4 points.
Are business interests in the U.S. too politically powerful or is the government unnecessarily restricting their ability to compete in the global marketplace? This course will explore the complex relationship between what are traditionally separate disciplines of study but which are converging in an increasingly regulated domestic and globalized economy. The course will review the political, governmental and judicial policies that create the current environment for business as well as examine the respective roles played by the congress, the executive branch and the courts. There will also be general comparisons between U.S. behaviors and institutions and those in Germany, the economic engine driving the European Union’s economy.
