ECON 380. Global Economic Development. 3 Credits.

This course focuses on economic development issues at the global level. It covers both developing countries in the conventional sense and economies in transition from socialism to a market economy. In this context development is broadly defined as the transition from one stage of development to another. Selected topics common among these countries (such as determinants of growth, modernization, technology, price liberalization, privatization, macro stabilization, trade policies, legal structure, organized crime, inequality, poverty, human capital, and global sustainability) are discussed to better understand the forces that shape the wealth and well being of nations and people in the world around us. Prerequisites: ECON 201 and ECON 202. On demand.
