ECON 73 The Political Economy of Development

Why are some nations rich and others poor? Answering this question requires an understanding of the process of economic development and growth and also of the obstacles—predominantly political—that are placed in its way. This course develops such an understanding using the evidence of preindustrial Europe and China and building on the insights of Adam Smith. It then applies this understanding to analyze the problems of developing and developed countries today. 





The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
