ECON 347 Advanced Topics in Development Economics

This course will cover a series of topics on economic development in low-income countries. The emphasis will be on microeconomic theory as it applies to poor country settings. The topics addressed in the course are based on recent advances in economic theory related to information-based market failures and fragmentation, coordination failures, and self-reinforcing mechanisms that result in persistence of dysfunctional institutions prevalent in poor countries.
