ECON-483 Development Economics
Fall for 2006-2007
The purpose of this course is to provide you with a basic understanding of a number of important concepts and theories in the literature on economic development. Topics to be discussed include growth, human capital, inequality, poverty and nutrition, rural credit market, tenancy and land markets. The strongest emphasis will be placed on a firm grasp of the conceptual issues involved. In addition, I will often cite data and discuss case studies. At the end of the course, I'd like you to be in a position were you can read about (or directly experience) development issues.
Prerequisites: ECON-101 or ECON-103 and ECON-102 or ECON-104
