Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Reflecting our integrated teaching and learning concept, this course includes the building of theoretical knowledge as well as its application to specific cases in East Asia. In a first step, students thus learn about the various types of economic systems including market economies, socialist systems, and market socialism and discuss the merits of different approaches towards their classification. This will include the question of transition and transformation of former socialist systems. In a second part, this knowledge will be applied to single cases in East Asia. We will develop an understanding of the types of economic systems prevalent in these cases, and the relevance of such insights. The focus of this seminar is on a static analysis of the status quo, and only to a lesser extent on economic development trajectories. The actual economies in East Asia are constantly changing. We therefore focus less on empirical knowledge of the structures and sectors of East Asian economies, but rather aim at developing and testing an applicable framework for their analysis.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Student participation in discussion is an integral part of this course. Regular participation is thus mandatory. The following rules apply: The final grade remains unchanged in the case of up to three absences. If you are absent for up to 4 times, the final grade will be reduced by one full grade. If you are absent for up to 5 times, the final grade will be reduced by two full grades, and so forth.
For the group presentations (see above), every member of the group will receive the same grade. I will grade the quality of the handout, of the PPT, and of the presentation.
Students are required to write a term paper (Seminararbeit). Details including structure, layout and grading criteria will be announced during class. The term papers are due on April 15th, 2013. Term papers will only be accepted in printed form (not electronically). They must be turned in either directly at my office or via my mail box in the secretariat. A delay in term paper submission of up to 1 week will result in downgrading by one full grade. A delay in term paper submission of up to 2 weeks will result in downgrading by two full grades, and so forth.
The final grade for the course will be calculated as follows:
Term paper: 50%
Group presentations: 50% (25% each)

Please note: The term paper is an indispensable component of the seminar, in particular as it serves as a direct preparation for the MA thesis. In order to finish the course, students must have their term paper graded with at least 4. Students who fail to submit a term paper will be graded 5 (fail) for the seminar.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

- students acquaint themselves with the fundamentals of the theories of economic
systems (liberal or socialist systems etc.)
- they are familiar with important macroeconomic and structural indicators, practice
their application to concrete country cases and analyze the obtained results in an
scholarly manner
- they are aware of and understand the concrete situation of contemporary East Asian
economic systems including the respective economic policy, financial policy, fiscal
policy, regulatory policy, foreign trade policy, role of markets etc.
- they develop and practice the skill to conduct comparative analyses of, in particular,
similar cases and comprehend contemporary and possible future societal consequences
of the respective systems, also in light of regionalization

Prüfungsstoff

This is a text-based seminar. Accordingly, in preparation of each unit, students will be asked to read related book chapters or articles. This will create a foundation for active discussion during the seminar. Expect reading about 40 pages per week.
In addition, each student will be required to actively contribute to at least two group presentations. This includes joint handouts with the key points on the assigned topic, and joint PPT presentations. Details of the assignments are specified in a separate document.
