Description du contenu de l'enseignement
Because economic growth has a strong impact on people’s living standards and on inequalities between people and countries in the long run, growth theory has established as a primary field in economics.
The main objectives of the class are to:
- Identify the main determinants of economic growth and inequalities
- Understand why some countries are richer than others, and understand why some countries grow at a faster rate than others
- Understand how and when governments should intervene to boost economic growth in their countries.
