PPOL 542 - Pol Econ in Developing Cntries
This class explores some of the central debates in the application of political economy to development policy. We will examine how political institutions influence economic development and how economic factors, in turn, impact politics in developing countries. We will also explore why governments employ policies that may actually hinder development. The goal of this course is for students to think critically about development both in theory and in practice. As such, we will study the main theories of development policy from both political and economic perspectives. And, students will become well acquainted with development policy by studying real world cases and developing practical policy recommendations of their own.
