COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
SS462 ECONOMIC GROWTH & DEVELOPMENT 2020 2 Social Sciences 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course provides an overview of major topics in the study of economic development. It combines the study of economic theories on the determinants of growth and development with a discussion of related and current empirical work. The goal is not to provide exhaustive coverage of all relevant topics, but instead to expose cadets to current issues and debates in the field of development economics. By the end of the course, cadets should be familiar with indicators of growth and development, know seminal theories and be able to assess them in light of empirical evidence, be able to read, understand, and critique current empirical research in economic development, and be able to think innovatively about policy design by drawing on and integrating theoretical and empirical research. Ultimately, cadets will be empowered as future decision-makers to better design, implement, and evaluate policy interventions.
