Example text

Here, we focus on the main implications of the recent convergence between IPE and economics. Clearly, this convergence process has taken IPE further away from its origins in international relations and, especially, the explicit or implicit anti-economics stance of early IPE. This has been particularly true in the 16 United States, where leading universities have strongly promoted this trend to the point where positive political economy has become the dominant mainstream approach in IPE. Anti-economics is no longer a helpful starting point, either for those beginning the study of IPE or for those engaged in research in the field.

The competition between these domestic interest groups for policy influence, shaped by the constraints of collective action, was assumed to be roughly determinant of the government’s policy choices. This model largely ignored the emphasis that early IPE had placed on international forces such as security and asymmetries of economic development and interdependence. In some ways, therefore, it retarded further integration between domestic and international theories of economic policies. Furthermore, at the domestic level, this model was weak on the supply side of economic policy.

This reflected a general desire on the part of many IPE scholars to be taken seriously by the discipline, economics, which enjoyed the highest prestige in the social sciences. 47 This trend towards econometrics in political economy both utilized and promoted the growing availability of quantitative measures of political variables across countries and over time. 48 The rise of quantitative method as the gold standard of empirical political economy reopened debates about the pros and cons of quantitative and qualitative evidence.
