Contents
Development economics is a branch of economics that deals with the economic aspects of the development process in low-income countries and covers various policy issues such as economic growth, poverty, inequality, education, fertility, urbanization, rural stagnation, rural-urban migration, environmental decay, trade, investment, government role in the market economy, development aid, and so on. The social and political factors of development economics frequently play more significant roles in its analysis than those of other branches of economics. Due to the time constraints, this course focuses on several important empirical research and policy debates about the income growth and the distributions.
This course also provides students with fundamental skills of empirical analysis through the computer workshop, using the widely software applications of statistical analysis Stata. The basic programming skills of Stata are prerequisite for this course.
