Economic History Seminar

Listed in: Economics, as ECON-71


Daniel P. Barbezat (Section 01)


We will begin by examining contemporary growth and development models and then apply them to the sweep of global economic history over the past 300 years. The course is a seminar, so students will be assessed on their close reading and their responses to articles and books assigned in the course. Students will engage directly with economic history issues and will produce an original piece of research by the end of the course. Requisite: Economics 53 or 57 and 54 or 58. Limited to 15 students. Fall semester.
