This course is the second in a two-semester sequence on development economics, concentrating on the microeconomic issues of development. Both theoretical and empirical research are studied. The theoretical component emphasizes issues related to rural household decisions such as consumption, agricultural production, and fertility, although some attention is given to urbanization and industrialization. The empirical component includes statistical and microeconometric methods, but also nonquantitative methods such as anthropological studies.
