This course is an introduction to the political economy of contemporary Europe. We will learn about evolving relations between labor, capital and the state on the continent that was the birthplace of capitalism. Four questions will structure the discussion. What defines capitalism and distinguishes it from alternative systems? Is there a European capitalism that differs from American capitalism? Why does capitalism undergo crises? How does it manage to survive?
