ECON 130: Poverty Policies: Theory, Design and Analytics (PUBLPOL 138)

Understanding the historical evolution of development policy, in the context of initial socio-economic and institutional conditions and through the lens of economic models of growth and poverty reduction. Starting with an overview of theoretical and empirical research that relates initial conditions to subsequent outcomes, the course will then focus on understanding the implementation and effectiveness of government policies in fields such as education, rural livelihoods, health, and financial inclusion, using the Indian economy as an example. Students will work with existing government administrative data from India to develop data sets and conduct simple data analytics and analysis (using Stata) to evaluate policy design and effectiveness in these areas. Course grades will be based on short data analysis projects and a longer final paper also with significant data analysis. Prerequisites: ECON 50, Econ 102A. Limited enrollment: 15 students.
