Nearly one billion people live on $2.00 or less per day. This course is designed to introduce students to the causes, constraints, contexts, and potential solutions associated with poverty and economic development. Although this class is an economics course, helpful insights from anthropology, political science, ethics/worldview, psychology, sociology, history, etc. are incorporated into the presentations and discussions to capture the multi-dimensionality (i.e. holistic nature) and complexity of economic development.
