    Foreign Policy Magazine Recognizes Thomas Oatley and Three UNC Ph.D.s

    Foreign Policy magazine (FP) columnist and Professor of Political Economy at Tufts University’s Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Daniel W. Drezner recently announced the 2013 winners of the Albies, an award that recognizes the year’s best writing in global political economy.  Among the ten winners of the 5th annual Albies is Thomas Oatley, associate professor of political science and three co-authors including two former Ph.D. students, W. Kindred Winecoff  (2013) and Andrew Pennock (2010), and Sarah Bauerle Danzman, a current Ph.D student.

    In announcing the awardees, Drezner, said “the important thing is that these…contributions forced the reader to think about the way the global economy works in a way that can’t be un-thought.”

    “The Political Economy of Global Finance: A Network Model” published in Perspectives in Politics 11, was selected by Drezner because “Oatley et al use some nifty network analysis to show that U.S. capital markets have become more, not less central, since the 2008 financial crisis.”

    This is Oatley’s second Albie Award, having won previously in 2011 http://www.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2011/12/30/announcing_the_2011_albies#sthash.kFF8xGBA.dpbs.
