I took a survey course in modern Political Economy two years ago. From what I remember, the modern Political Economy is a social science that studies the relationships between power and wealth (or alternatively how the political and economic processes shape each other). It also has a subfield called International Political Economy, which is concerned with similar concepts at the international level (for example how international trade and finance systems are shaped by political institutions, individual states, etc).

As you can imagine, this is a very interdisciplinary subject that has a lot of overlap with various fields in economics (such as public economics, public choice, international economics, game theory) as well as political science. Although there exist dedicated PhD programs in Political Economy, I know that there exist some economics departments (and I would imagine, Political Science departments) that conduct training and research in political economy under the umbrella of their respective PhD programs. For example, I head that some people at MIT's and UC Berkeley's economics departments are working in this area. UC Irvine has some people with interests in the topics in political economy such as peace and conflict studies, public choice, etc. Incidentally, these are also the universities which do not have a graduate program specifically in political economy (but I could be wrong..). However, this is somewhat a narrow and less common concentration in economics. You should definitely investigate which universities are good for it if you do it through an economics PhD program. As for Harvard KSG, someone posted here that the Political Economy adcom at Harvard wants you to provide a justification for applying there and not to normal economics program (e.g. if they find out that you applying to normal economics program and political economy at the same time, they might toss your application, know knows..)
