ECON20020 Development Economics
Not offered in 2002.
In this course the theoretical foundations of economic development
are examined and various models of development economics are explained
and critically evaluated. Economic development strategies adopted by
different countries are identified and their effectiveness evaluated
in terms of the stated objectives. The determinants of economic development
are analysed and barriers to successful development policy implementation
are discussed in a comparative analysis framework. Finally, the
export-led growth theory of economic development is discussed within
the contemporary Asian context.
