The course is designed primarily for economics majors, but is also appropriate for international studies majors and other students seeking an understanding of growth and development. We will study the underlying determinants economic growth, including factor accumulation and technological progress. We also will explore how political and social institutions influence the process of economic development. Our goal is to explain why some countries experience rapid increases in their standard of living while others do not. A central feature will be the role policy plays in affecting economic success or failure.
