Descriptif

Health and Development Economics

 

This course is an introduction to development economics with a specific focus on the relationship between health and development. To what extent do differences in the disease environment explain differences in economic performance? Which policies are effective at improving health in developing countries? We will study these questions from an empirical perspective and review recent evidence to shed light on important policy debates. We will touch upon the two main views on fundamental causes of economic growth: endowments and institutions.
