EC310B – Economics of Poverty

I am very excited to be teaching a new course in Winter 2018, on the Economics of Poverty. We will be following the text of the same name by Martin Ravallion, with a strong focus on written analysis in the course.

As a special topics course, EC310B only has 1st year Economics as a prerequisite, but I would strongly encourage students to have completed a Statistics course that covers OLS regression prior to taking the course. Students will be expected to complete a significant number of short (2-page) written assignments, along with two medium-length written assignments.
