Introduction to Development Economics, 23 June – 17 July 2014, University of Sussex

The rich get richer and the poor get poorer’ – true or false? For the last few decades, this question has become the core problem for development economics. In this module at the Sussex University International Summer School, you will investigate by studying examples of successful reforms and policies undertaken to combat poverty, inequality and corruption in bureaucracy and business.

The course covers theoretical and applied tools to analyse the problems faced by poor communities across the world including less-developed countries (Sub-African countries) and emerging markets (CEE countries, South American countries). You will also be introduced to a simple statistical analysis with an implementation of various international databases (international ERSC, World Bank, IMF). This module will take you on an exciting journey though poverty and inequality, the neo-classical and endogenous growth theories, microfinance, financial crisis and foreign aid, conflicts and corruptions, climate changes and technology growth, education and human capital.
