Ethan Bueno de Mesquita's Publications and Working Papers

This page contains materials that may be useful for instructors who are teaching from my book Political Economy for Public Policy (Princeton University Press). I am making available both my Beamer/LaTeX files so you can edit (please excuse my hacky LaTeX code) and PDFs for both presentation (i.e., with reveals) and handouts (i.e., without reveals). For each lecture, there is also a zip file with all the figures I used as PDFs. If you put those figures in a directory called "figures" inside the directory you have the LaTeX file in, the LaTeX file will compile.

I am also including materials for some activities I do in class. For each activity, I've included detailed instructions, as well as any materials that I use.

I hope these materials are helpful. Please contact me if you find any errors or have suggestions.

The book is available from Princeton University Press or Amazon.
