1 Année universitaire 2014/2015 Collège universitaire Semestre d automne Development Economics Lisa CHAUVET & Isabelle CHORT Course content and objectives Lectures will explore the related themes of Economic Growth and Development. The course is organized around 7 topic areas, or modules, that together provide comprehensive coverage of Development Economics (poverty & inequality, migrations, agriculture and land, institutions, aid, and civil wars). We will first analyze the main theories and models of economic development and study the determinants of economic growth, focusing on labor mobility and agriculture. Then, we will focus on important economic issues such as institutions, aid and civil wars. The main questions that will be addressed in class include: What kinds of policies are required to reduce poverty? Is population mobility good for growth? Is the fate of poor countries geographically pre-determined? Is trade good for growth? Is aid effective to achieve development? Is democratization good for growth? What can be done to prevent civil wars? LECTURE 1 (5/9) : Lisa Chauvet.

Other material for the course includes: -Easterly, William (2002), The Elusive Quest for Growth: Economists' Adventures and Misadventures in the Tropics, Cambridge, MA. MIT Press. -Abhijit V.

5 Course Website The website for the course (accessible through the ENTG) should be visited frequently. Readings that are available in electronic form will be posted in the Resources section of the website, as will copies of all course-related handouts. Also basis exercises and quizzes will be posted for the students to practice.

6 Evaluation Grades are based on: one paper (1/3), in class multiple choice questions (1/3) a two-hour final exam (1/3). The paper is due in class at latest on the last day of class in December. An electronic copy should be send to the lecturer s urkund address to screen for plagiarism Guidelines for paper assignment INSTRUCTIONS 1. Choose a news article (not an opinion column such as an editorial) published after May 1, 2008, in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Business Week, The Economist, or The Financial Times (no exceptions!). The story should relate to development and/or underdevelopment in developing countries and to one of the topics covered in class. 2. Summarize in one tight paragraph the story contained in the article. 3. Identify the important issues posed explicitly and implicitly in the article from the standpoint of economic development in the developing world. 4. Use the tools and knowledge you have acquired in this course to analyze the issues you have identified. REQUIREMENTS 1. Your paper may not exceed four pages in length, exclusive of the cover page and of pages devoted solely to endnotes, figures, and references. 2. On the cover page, on successive lines, centered, roughly one-third of the way down the page, place: the title of your article, the name of the periodical, the date of publication, your name, your student identification number, Development economics, Fall The paper must be typed and double-spaced; use margins of at least 1 inch and a font size of 12 (points). Use this font size for endnotes as well as for text. 4. Attach a copy of the article (or articles, if the story is told in a series of reports). 5. Staple together all of the pages of your submission (including the copy of the article). 6. Number each page of your paper (except the cover page) using Arabic numerals. Consider the cover page to be page When numbering endnotes, use Arabic numerals. SUGGESTIONS 1. Comply scrupulously with the instructions and requirements above. Failure to do so will result in lost points. If you don t understand something, seek clarification from us or from the TA. 2. Begin immediately your search for a suitable article. Toward this end, you will probably want to read regularly at least one of the periodicals mentioned above. 3. Choose your article carefully. It should be easy to find an article that bears on Economic development in Africa, Asia and Latin America. It will be more challenging (but certainly not difficult) to find an article that permits you to discuss issues and tools of relevance to this class. Remember the point of the exercise: to show us what you have learned in this class. 4. The instructions on examinations will read (in part): Wherever possible, enrich your answers with examples and references drawn from course discussions and materials. Wherever necessary, define important terms and explain the assumptions underlying your arguments. Points will be awarded for organized and coherent argumentation. These instructions apply with even greater stringency on the paper, for which you have more time and direct access to class materials, than they do on the examinations. 5. You are not required to find and consult sources other than those that appear on the syllabus; but you are certainly not prohibited from conducting research in the library! Nor are you prohibited from consulting multiple articles, in various periodicals, covering the same event.

7 Guidelines for the final exam A two-hour exam will be organized after the twelve lectures. It will be made of various sections. It will typically include some True/False/Uncertain questions, some Multiple Choice Questions, some short answers questions and quantitative questions. Exams of previous years are good illustrations of what students can expect and will be provided.
