Business activity is the source of employment, wealth and government revenue and consequently the needs and expectations of business are central to politics and public policy. This unit examines interdependencies between business and government, including the economic, institutional and ideological contexts that frame such relations. The focus is on the activities that employers and entrepreneurs engage in to influence politics. A political economy approach is introduced, with an international orientation. Topics include business regulation at national and transnational levels, comparisons between business-government relations in the Anglo-American countries and East Asia and Europe and assessment of the relative power of business, government and other actors.
