Constructing Open Political-Economic Systems
What is PPE?

The kind of system design envisioned by GLOPE requires not only a synthesis of political science and economics but an underlying philosophical basis as well. The problems facing human society in the 21st century cannot be resolved through the development of a purely technical interface linking politics with economic concerns. Rather, there is a pressing need for research that fundamentally reexamines existing values and promises to lead to the selection of new ones. The guiding principle informing our research can therefore be expressed as "PPE" (Philosophy, Political Science, and Economics). PPE is a principle that GLOPE shares with the newly established Department of Global Political Economy in the School of Political Science and Economics at Waseda.
