Dynamics of Political Economy


This is an attempt to review the “Political Business Cycle” story of more than 35 years of last quarter of 20th century, where we look through various theoretical as well as empirical analysis of it. The whole idea of the paper is concentrated on manipulations of Monetary and Fiscal Policies by politicians in different ways for their benefit. Lastly, I will talk about my ideas and possible progress of my research with opportunistic government in the presence of rational citizen-voters.
