Economic Development - 32625 - ECON 211 - 70
Prerequisite of ECON001 and ECON002 This course examines issues in development economics. We begin by reviewing development objectives and theories of economic growth and by taking stock of poverty, inequality, and vulnerability in the world today. Then we study models of markets for goods and services, labor markets, financial markets, and international markets, taking care to document how the situations of developing economies require modifications of the perfectly competitive market model we studied in microeconomic principles. Finally, we will study economists’ approach to development policy analysis and we will study in detail two specific areas that require much attention in development: education and infrastructure.
