This course explores theoretical developments in the analysis of economic growth and introduces current debates on evidence and policy-relevant to the growth performance of both developed and developing economies. The course is structured around a series of key papers from journals, lecture material and a relevant coursebook. The theoretical material is reinforced by tutorial exercises and assignments that require students to understand and interpret the mathematics and economics of the growth models.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- demonstrate an understanding of economic growth models
- demonstrate an understanding of how growth models have changed over time
- demonstrate an understanding of key empirical findings in the field
- examine the role of policies that aid economic growth - both for developed and developing economies
- use data and case studies to undertake country analysis in individual and/or group setting
- use empirical and theoretical material from literature to provide policy recommendations
