ECON 084. Latin American Economies
A survey of the development experience of Latin American countries. We study policy choices in their political and institutional context.
Topics include Latin American economic history, informality in labor markets, pension reform, antitrust policy, regional economic integration and trade, debt and currency crises, and the effectiveness of foreign aid.
Guest speakers from universities across Latin America will present on topics pertinent to their own countries. We plan to visit the World Bank and the Interamerican Development Bank (most likely virtually due to COVID restrictions) to learn about their projects and lending in the LA region.
