AFST 309 - African Economic Development

Fall (3) Shiferaw. Prerequisite(s): ECON 101  /ECON 151  and ECON 102  /ECON 152 .

Africa was richer than Asia until the 1970s, but faltered subsequently. We seek credible explanations using economic theory and the available evidence. We will address a number of issues comparatively including the role of geography, demography, historical legacies, the global environment, and domestic economic governance to understand the diversity of economic performance within Africa itself.
