Course on Development Economics

The focus of the course will be on the main current topics in the development economics literature. After a brief methodological overview, the course will discuss poverty traps and foreign aid effectiveness. Natural resources and ethnic divisions will then be studied. Good institutions will be portrayed as improving development. We will then examine democracy and corruption. The remaining of the course is devoted to assessing development interventions. We will first look at governance interventions. We will then analyze social programs devoted to health and education. Then we turn to incentivizing access to formal banking, namely to credit, savings, and remittances. Finally we devote some attention to agriculture policy in developing countries.
