This book challenges conventional wisdoms both about economic performance and about policies for economic development in African countries. Its starting point is the striking variation in economic performance: unevenness and inequalities form a central fact. The authors highlight not only differences between African countries but also variations within countries, differences often organized around distinctions of gender, class, and ethnic identity.
Trade Strategies and Economic Development: Theory and Evidence
Economic Development and International Trade pp Cite as. The commercial policies that a developing country pursues may have a significant effect on the pattern and pace of economic growth and development, by influencing either directly or indirectly via changes in relative prices the allocation of resources between sectors e. The aim of this chapter will be to identify the nature and characteristics of alternative strategies that developing countries may pursue and have pursued in the last three decades. Finally, it will seek to evaluate the extent to which empirical evidence demonstrates whether the intentions or objectives of particular strategies have been satisfied. Although these aims could be satisfied without recourse to any judgements about the relative merits of alternative strategies, normative judgement will be difficult to avoid.

DEV is a semester-long course that evaluates theories of economic under development and scrutinizes empirical evidence in order to understand key features of the development process across countries. To do so, the course will utilize analytical frameworks, grounded in economic theory, that examine the determinants of factor accumulation by individuals, firms and societies. Drawing on empirical evidence on individual and societal behavior, we will evaluate the relevance of these frameworks for diagnosing root causes of economic development. The course has three broad sections: i Analytical frameworks for understanding proximate determinants of economic growth and factor accumulation; ii Individual determinants and returns to investment in human capital health and education , financial capital credit markets, savings behavior and the role of behavioral economics, culture and governance systems in affecting individual investments; and iii resource misallocation, learning and coordination and their impacts on productivity; the role of industrialization and growth diagnostics. In the Spring, DEV will use these frameworks to examine the design of development policies.

DEV-101: Economic Development: Theory and Evidence
Female heights matter. This chapter examines some of the early historiography on female stature and summarizes the historical evidence. The focus then shifts to how we understand the growth of girls versus boys and the methods used to measure historical populations. The chapter then outlines some of the risks of being stunted, identified in a set of empirical relationships among height, weight, morbidity, and mortality that are a function of both age and sex. The chapter then looks at the unique role of mothers and the way their stature not only records the accumulated experience of their own nutrition and welfare history, but how it intimately shapes the generations to come, critically influencing future economic performance.
Development economics is a branch of economics which deals with economic aspects of the development process in low income countries. Its focus is not only on methods of promoting economic development , economic growth and structural change but also on improving the potential for the mass of the population, for example, through health, education and workplace conditions, whether through public or private channels. Development economics involves the creation of theories and methods that aid in the determination of policies and practices and can be implemented at either the domestic or international level.
Rising population is an asset, provided, the skills of the workforce are used to the maximum extent. If not appropriately channelized, it can be a liability for a nation.
