This chapter focuses on the links between politics and economics, showing how important they are to each other. After decades during which they were studied in isolation, they have been reconnected since the 1960s as political scientists and economists have worked to better understand the intersection between politics and economics. Just as it is important to understand how political systems work, and how democracy and authoritarianism differ, so it is important to understand how economic systems work, as well as how and why governments take diff erent approaches to the economy.
