EIB E242: Development Economics: Micro Perspectives
This course teaches students how to use microeconomic theory and econometric skills to analyze issues in low-income countries, develop policy interventions to address those issues, and measure the impact of such interventions in a rigorous empirical manner. It then addresses the issues that constrain and support development, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa: health and education, labor, agriculture, financial services, and institutions. Open to students who have completed E211 or an intermediate microeconomic theory course. E213 is strongly recommended.
