Politics and Media

Main content start

Politicians spearhead and approve the laws and regulations that govern our institutions. The media help shape our understanding — and increasingly, our impressions — of those policies. Economic methods of evaluation and analysis offer important perspectives into how these elements of society work and how they can be improved. SIEPR scholars are examining the way media markets work and influence audiences, the impacts of lobbying on the political process, the factors that cause policies to be implemented, political corruption, and many other aspects of how politics and the media shape societies in America and around the world.

Keywords: political economy, policy implementation, media markets, lobbying, elections, legislatures
