Abstract: 
In this paper I aim to try defining New Political Economy (NEP) as the economic study of politics, with a macroeconomic focus. It emerged from the influences mainly from the criticism of theory of economic policy, political business cycle research, public choice theory and new institutional economics. Due to its ample nature, different economists have different understandings of what it is, and their definitions may clash against each other. This article aims to be a contribution to dissipate this confusion.
