Development Economics Concentration Requirement:
The concentration in development economics would be well suited for students who are interested in studying the challenge posed by massive and persistent world poverty and in learning how the tools of economics can be used to shape policies designed to remedy this serious social problem.
The Development Economics concentration requires three subjects:
14.73 The Challenge of World Poverty
14.01 Principles of Microeconomics
and a more advanced subject in development economics. Usually the third subject will be either:
14.75 Political Economy and Economic Development
14.76 Firms, Markets, Trade and Growth
An acceptable alternative set of courses would be 14.01, 14.75, and 14.76.
