ECON-6202 The Political Economy of Development

This course approaches macroeconomics topics important to understand the long term, focusing on micro-based models of inter-temporal choices. The course presents both the basic theoretical elements and the related empirical evidence. It is divided into two sections. The first one analyzes the recent and most relevant contributions to the economic growth theory and studies the neoclassical growth model and the first endogenous growth models. The last part of the course is devoted to presenting some recent breakthroughs in the long-term economic growth theory focused on subjects as income distribution, human capital formation, demographic transition and industrial revolution.
