In this course we take a historical approach to understand how different schools of thought and individual thinkers have conceptualized the problems of development and sought answers to the most pressing questions about economic growth and development. Our focus will be on debates in the 20th and 21st centuries, and will span issues of growth and change in both the industrialized and developing worlds.
