Advanced Development Microeconomics

Jean-Louis Arcand

EI012 | Spring | 6 ECTS

A good general reference for the theory underlying this course, and the level at which it will be pitched, is Bardhan, P. and C. Udry (1999): Development Microeconomics (Oxford University Press). The focus of the course will be on how to go from rigorous micro theory to the appropriate empirical test, as illustrated by a selection of classic papers in the field, as well as several more recent papers that are worth looking at. A solid knowledge of micro theory and econometrics is essential.
