Economic Policy and the Media
The seminar focuses on the interplay between politics, the market and the media. Which economic policy issues rise to the top of the public agenda, and which ones don’t? Which ones are being prioritized, and which ones neglected? Whose interests are highlighted, and whose are largely ignored? Studying these questions may be just a sideshow in standard economics. However, they are at the core of the practical conduct of economic policy. The seminar offers concepts to systematically evaluate current policy issues and their public perception. Special attention is devoted to the news media, who play an outsized role in setting the economic policy agenda setting.
