ECON 312 Economic Development


This course addresses the scope and causes of international inequality, particularly the nature of the economic problems facing the
world’s poorer countries, with emphasis on the African, South American, and Asian continents. Theories of growth and inequality,
uneven development, and the roles of schooling, foreign trade, agriculture, manufacturing, fertility, migration, finance, and the
environment in the development process will be considered. The goals of the course are to teach students how to model and use the
models to formulate policy in the unique contexts of developing economies. (Course not offered 2015-16.)
