This exciting, new text provides students with a superior grounding in economic theory and domestic politics. It de-emphasizes the traditional schools of thought in IPE in favor of those theories that reflect today's research. Oatley provides undergraduates with the necessary background in history and economic theory that they need to understand the core elements of contemporary international political economy. The book's approach is based on four assumptions: that IPE is best understood through a choice-centered framework; individual and group economic policy preferences are shaped by anticipated income consequences; individuals and groups are rational; and institutions both help individuals solve collective action problems and shape the distribution of the benefits from collective action.
