Masthead for Anoop Sadanandan

Why do states choose particular institutions? How do these institutions shape political and economic behavior? Why do some people benefit and others lose from policies meant to improve general economic, political and social well-being? These are some of the questions I study. My studies stem from a desire to understand the political economy of development. In these studies, I seek to identify the interlinkages among political competition, political institutions, public policy and the economy.
