Development Economics

The course is designed to introduce students to the complex subject of Economic Development, its terms, tools, and theories, as well as the policies intended to stimulate it and the pitfalls waiting to trap the unwary policymaker. Its complexity derives from defining economic development as the intersection of economic, political, and social dimensions and their evolution over time, within a specific geographic, cultural, and historical context. Development is envisioned as a process, rather than a goal, continuing and evolving through time and across levels of material well-being.
