Intermediate Development Economics


01 Sep 2021 — 14 Oct 2021

There are enormous differences across countries in income and poverty, as well as in health, education, nutritional standards, and other factors related to the quality of life. The main objective of this course is discuss research that seeks to understand those differences, and identifies remedies to improve the living conditions of the poor.

The course first provides a macro-economic perspective, which discusses what we know (and do not know) about the relation between growth and poverty reduction. Some of the questions addressed are: What might drive economic growth? Are there reasons to believe that average income levels will converge across the world? Does growth reduce poverty?

The second part of the course will then present a microeconomic perspective on the lives of the poor. First, we will talk about different reasons why ‘poverty traps’ might emerge – situations where poor individuals stay poor because they are poor. We will then talk about the role of credit and insurance markets in the economic lives of the poor. The course will devote separate lectures to the role of education and market integration, as well as the role of agriculture in economic development. In doing so, we will discuss simple formal economic theories, as well as evidence using a wide range of empirical methods.

As part of the pedagogical process, we will be using classroom experiments during the course so that students experience first-hand the type of institutions, incentives and choices associated with social interactions and interactions with their natural environment.

The individual test consists in answering 3 questions during an online oral exam. On average one (online) quiz with multiple answers is given in each lesson: a rate of participation and an answer score above the respective median earn a bonus of +1 point for each one of the two factors. After the first 3-4 course weeks, the teacher subdivides the class in working groups of max 5 students. The team work consists in realizing a short presentation (20 minutes circa) and a paper (minimum 15 pages). Team work topics will be agreed during the course; the presentations will be delivered in front of the class at the Presentation Day (in the last week of the course). Final papers must be handed in one week before the first written exam session, in early January. After the working groups are formed, the teacher offers each group to give a lesson of the course in flipped class modality and the groups which accept receive a bonus of +1. The final grade is given by the weighted average between the grade of the team work (with weight 0.25) and the individual oral exam (with weight 0.75) to which the possible bonuses are added. For the students who do not participate in the team work, the individual exam determines 100% of the final grade. Both the weighting with the vote of the team work and the addition of the bonuses can take place only if the student gets at least 18/30 in his/her individual final exam.

The governance of communities and organizations is studied and this is then linked to questions of sustainable growth. The course ends with reflections on the role of globalization and increased international dependence on the process of development.
