GOVT 84.38 Trading Places: How Chile Passed Argentina on the Road to Development

This course will investigate and analyze the factors that led to and inhibited development in Chile and Argentina.   It will trace key economic, political and social variables in both countries from the export-led growth period of the Second Industrial Revolution to the present time in an effort to draw conclusions regarding why, when, and how Chile was able to advance at a faster pace than Argentina. 




In doing so, the course will draw on tools of economic, political and historical analysis, seeking to compare the two case studies in a multi-disciplinary framework.  The course will be a seminar in order to stimulate student discussion.
