This block seminar forms part of the MA Governance module. The seminar will focus on governance related issues connected with the financial crisis beginning in 2007 and the actions taken or not taken by political actors and institutions in the United States. This focus will examine changes in law and changes in the policies during both the Bush and Obama administrations, and the role of such institutions as relevant legislative branch entities and executive bureaus, the role of think tanks and policy analysis organizations in evaluating policy options, and the role of political parties, mass media, and other civil society entities in formulating and legitimating policy.

Recommended readings include:
Kingdon, John W., Agendas, Alternatives and Public Policies (New York, 1995);
Sabatier, Paul (ed.), Theories of the Policy Process, 2nd ed. (Boulder, Colorado, 2007);
Kindelberger, Charles, Manias, Panics, and Crashes: A History of Financial Crises (Hoboken, NJ, 2005);
Sorkin, Andrew Ross, Too Big to Fail: The Battle to Save Wall Street (Londeon, 2009);
