Intermediate Development Economics, 7.5 credits

About the course

It is well known that there are enormous differences across (and within) countries, not only in terms of economic wellbeing, but also regarding health, education and nutrition standards. The main objective of this course is to provide different explanations of why this is the case and what economists see as the chief remedies for reducing poverty in all forms. To what extent, if any, does growth reduce poverty and whether economic growth is necessary and/or sufficient for poverty alleviation.
