Growth, Inequality and Poverty
SWS:

Dozierende:
Grimm, Michael, Prof. Dr.
Veranstaltungstyp:
Vorlesung
Beschreibung:
Economic growth has led to substantial reductions in poverty in South-East Asia and more recently in China, India and Brazil. Some economists forecast similar reductions to come in large parts of Sub-Saharan Africa. How-ever, in many economies, including China, growth and poverty reduction are accompanied by a significant increase in inequality. This course discusses the statistical tools to investigate these dynamics and the underlying policies and external factors causing these changes. The course does also provide the theoretical foundations of the mainstream welfare measures and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of alternative approaches including the concept of happiness.
