Economic Development [Lecture] (3.0)
This course is designed to examine the processes of economic development across a broad set of countries. The fundamental question we seek to answer is: Why do some countries achieve high rates of growth (development) and others do not. The course will present various theories of development as well as analyzing policy alternatives at both the micro and macro levels for achieving (and sustaining) high levels of development. Country case studies will be used throughout the semester to enable students to integrate theory and policy applications.
Prerequisites: ECN 201, ECN 202, and admission to major. Non-Business majors by permission of the instructor.
