Description:
The Political Economy Seminar presents a lecture by William R. Clark, Charles Puryear Professor of Liberal Arts and Professor of Political Science at Texas A&M University.


Professor Clark is Head of the Department of Political Science and is a research fellow at the Institute for the Study of Religion at Baylor University. His research focus is on comparative and international political economy with an emphasis on the politics of macroeconomic policy in open economy settings.


Past research projects have addressed the way monetary institutions (central bank independence and exchange rate regimes) influence the ability of incumbent leaders to use macroeconomic policy for electoral purposes.  He has also contributed to the literature on comparative party systems.  In addition, Professor Clark has published papers on the statistical testing of conditional hypotheses.
