A tantárgy szakmai tartalma: Course goals: The aim of the course is to understand the logic and the different forms of industrial and post industrial economies, generally speaking, the market economies in a theoretical framework built on the conceptualization of the inter-relationship of economic, social and (partly) political structures. The readings shed light on the thinking of the new institutional economics and the historical and also the most recent forms of modern economies and economic polices. The course helps to understand the peculiarities of different types of modern economies, especially capitalism and state socialism and the reasons of collapsing the latter in Central and Eastern Europe. In this respect, the course focuses on the analysis of the state socialist economic model and its development over the past decades in order to provide a solid theoretical basis for the comparative analysis of the social transition in Eastern Europe and China. The course gives the opportunity for the students to discuss and to learn more about the issues, the findings, and the instruments of the new institutional economics and social sciences.

Az értékelés módszere: It is important to attend class regularly as well as to do the readings as attendance and participation is a significant part of your grade. Over the Semester classroom participation is obligatory, furthermore in class presentations, individual and team exercises, role-playing games, home assignments needed to be completed; for a maximum of 50 points. During the semester, students complete two quarterly written examinations for 25 points each, in all together for 50 points. You must achieve 60% of each part that makes up your final grade. So, you need to achieve a minimum of 30 points for the attendance/presentation/participation grade, and a minimum of 15 points for both exams. In other words, you might have more than 60 points total at the end of semester, but you cannot pass the course, if you failed one of the exams for example.
You are expected to deliver two in class presentations during the semester based on journal articles listed in the syllabus or sent to you by the instructors. You can (if you choose so) also earn a maximum of 10 extra points for delivering a country presentation.


The final grade is determined according to the followings:

0 – 59 points: unsatisfactory/failed
60 - 69 points: satisfactory/poor
70 – 79 points: average/fair
80 – 89 points: good/good
90 points and above: excellent/excellent
