Description

Course Description: 

Underdevelopment, poverty, tremendous income and wealth inequality, poor health and the lack of education are among the key challenges of many developing countries. According to the World Bank, 3.4 billion people still find it difficult to meet basic human needs. Development Economics focuses on the political, institutional and cultural mechanisms that foster economic development. It also explores strategies and policies directed towards enabling the economy to escape poverty traps. Generally, Development Economics is concerned with the efficient allocation of existing resources and their sustained growth.

 This course provides an in-depth discussion of different modern strategies to foster economic development and it explains how developing nations can be set on the track of sustained economic development. This course seeks to explore some of the main topics and debates in development economics such as, for example:

     

  • The meaning of economic development
  • Indicators and the measurement of economic development
  • Income and economic growth and development theories
  • Population growth and fertility
  • Poverty, vulnerability, inequality
  • Human capital, health, and education
  • The role of credit markets and microfinance,
  • International trade theory and development strategy
  • Sustainable development and the environment
  •  

The study material for the course (slides, exercises, etc.) will be provided in due course.

The course closes with a 2-hour closed book exam at the end of term.
