ECO334H1S The Political Economy of Media

In this course, we will develop tools to analyze voters and the role of information in democracies. We will evaluate theories of voter information using empirical literature on media and the political economy of media. We will explore the effects of innovations in information technology and evaluate how the empirical results square with the theory. We will study newspapers, radio, television, cable, the Internet and social media, and focus on empirical methods used to identify effects of media on voters.
