ECON 474 Economic Development

3 semester hours

This course is about global poverty, with a focus on the market failures that often characterize countries in the developing world and the solutions that countries have adopted to deal with these failures. We will explore how missing or incomplete markets for land, insurance, and credit give rise to the institutions that we see in developing countries, particularly in rural areas. Evidence about important policy debates, such as the role of industrialized countries in the development process, will be discussed in detail.

Prerequisite: ECON 310 .
