Omschrijving Why are some countries poor and some countries rich? This course explores the measurement and analysis of growth and development in today's world. Global economic growth has been rapid since the 1950s but uneven across countries, and major challenges to growth have appeared in the last decade. What were successful growth strategies in the past, and what are the implications of recent changes to trade and technology? What are the implications for inequality and the sustainability of living standards around the world? We discuss new global trends that provide both opportunities and challenges for growth and development. This will be done by in-depth study and discussion of major articles in this field.
