This is a half-semester module (taught over the course of the semester) that examines how economic theory and rigorous evidence can be harnessed to design development policies that respond to market and political failures in developing economies. The module builds on the analytical framework and evidence base provided in PED-101 (which is a prerequisite). Topics covered include: Policies for Productivity Growth, Policy Design for Markets in Human and Financial, Capital and Governance Reform. Prerequisite: PED-101.
This course is open to MPA/ID and Economics graduate students. Others by permission of instructors only. PED-102M is only open to students enrolled in PED-101 during the fall 2012 semester.
