Theory, Empirical Research, and Policy Analysis

Development Economics: Theory, Empirical Research, and Policy
Analysis
by Julie Schaffner teaches students to think about
development in a way that is disciplined by economic theory,
informed by cutting-edge empirical research, and connected in a
practical way to contemporary development efforts.  It lays
out a framework for the study of developing economies that is built
on microeconomic foundations and that highlights the importance in
development studies of transaction and transportation costs, risk,
information problems, institutional rules and norms, and insights
from behavioral economics. It then presents a systematic approach
to policy analysis and applies the approach to policies from around
the world, in the areas of targeted transfers, workfare,
agricultural markets, infrastructure, education, agricultural
technology, microfinance, and health.
