Abstract

The course outlines major economic policies associated with fostering economic growth and incentivizing various structural changes of the economy. The course uniquely focuses both on the issues of the catch-up growth by middle/low income countries and on the current economic concerns of the high-income countries. The latter include the development of the technology economy, the decrease of inequality across individuals and companies, stimuli for R&D investment and protection of intellectual property rights, promotion of energy efficiency and the use of environmentally friendly technologies. The course focuses on the macro and micro-level analysis of economic growth and draws upon the experience of the US, EU, Japan and the BRICS countries. Prerequisites: Introductory macroeconomics (grade 7 and above desirable), Introductory econometrics (grade 7 and above desirable). The course may be viewed as a good companion to electives: Time series, Dynamic panel data, Economics of innovation, Institutional economics.
