The Business, Government, & the International Economy Unit conducts research on, and teaches about, the economic, political, social, and legal environment in which business operates. The Unit is deeply interested in the impact of globalization and the way rules are emerging to govern international economic transactions as globalization proceeds. The faculty includes scholars trained in economics, political science, and history. In its work, it draws on perspectives from all three of these disciplines. The Unit's faculty approach learning and teaching in a variety of ways:
- examining the "rules" and policies established by government and other non-business institutions that affect business in the United States;
- turning to history to understand the origins of today's business environment as well as some of the alternatives that have emerged from time to time; and
- analyzing other countries' business environments and their historical development.
