The link between globalization and development is crucial to understanding the positions of developing (and rich) countries towards trade policy, immigration, FDI, and technology transfer. Students will leave this class with an understanding of: the difference between economic growth and development, the short run and long run impacts of globalization on industrial structure, politics, government, and society, and the challenges faced by both large and small developing countries seeking an appropriate path in today’s globalized world. They will be able to assess the likely impact of policy change on a country’s economic growth rate, poverty levels, income distribution, social and political institutions, and culture, both in general and for a specific country case of their choice.
