Political Economy of Washington State (1970 to Present)
Spring 2018 quarter
Governance in Washington State has been shaped by the transformation from a rural natural resource based economy to a manufacturing based economy after WWII followed by a transition to a service/technology based economy in more recent years. Understanding the economic and social forces that dominate our politics and culture is key to charting a future course through times of growing national and international uncertainty. Our State Capitol City is the perfect learning laboratory for exploring the interplay between politics and economics. Students will learn how to access and use information from state data systems and archives.
