-------- DATE:  ------------------------------------------------------------- 4:30pm to 6:00pm -------- LOCATION:  --------------------------------------------------------- K354, CGIS Knafel, 1737 Cambridge St. Cambridge, MA The Faculty of Arts and Sciences and The Institute for Quantitative Social Science at Harvard University are sponsoring a seminar on formal and quantitative political research. The Program on Positive Political Economy (PPE) supports research-related activities that integrate the study of economics and politics, whether by studying economic behavior in the political process or political behavior in the marketplace. In general, positive political economy is concerned with showing how observed differences among institutions affect political and economic outcomes in various social, economic, and political systems and how the institutions themselves change and develop in response to individual and collective beliefs, preferences, and strategies. All interested faculty and students are invited to attend. On March 5, Felipe Campante of Harvard will be presenting, \'From Father to Son: The Intergenerational Transmission of War\' (joint with David Yanagizawa-Drott).\' subscribe [1] iCal [2] [1] webcal://www.iq.harvard.edu/calendar/export.ics/342481 [2] http://www.iq.harvard.edu/calendar/export.ics/342481
