Development Economics

Spring 2020

Taught By: Sanjay Reddy

Section: A

CRN: 3841

Credits: 4

This course surveys key issues in development studies. It seeks to foster understanding of the main debates and approaches to study within the field of development economics, concerning the concept of development, the theory and empirics of growth and structural transformation, inequality and poverty, the impact of historical legacies, the impact of international trade and finance, the role of government, gender, population, health, social protection, and environment. The course furthers the awareness that development theory and practice are contentious domains and calls upon insights from diverse disciplines. Although the course includes a technical component, it equally emphasizes a critical and historical understanding of contemporary development debates and the role of political economy. No special topical knowledge is assumed. Introduction to Political Economy is a prerequisite.
