Class Notes:
http://classinfo.umn.edu/?assaad+PA5521+Spring2017
Class Description:
Examines techniques/assumptions of development planning and policy analysis at the national & regional & project levels. Focus on modeling techniques & planning applications rather than theory. Students assumed to have a background in theories of economic development and to have had previous preparation in quantitative methods. The point of the course is to introduce you to some widely-used modeling techniques that you may come across in the literature, professional practice or future careers. The goal is not to make you experts in any particular method. Instead, you should come away with an appreciation of the promise and pitfalls of quantitative modeling, while acquiring a specific set of skills through hands-on application. Models in the course are used to analyze direct and indirect effects of government interventions in the economy, with a stress on intersectoral linkages. Planning & policy analysis techniques such as macroeconomic modeling, input-output analysis, social accounting matrices & multipliers are covered. Techniques used in project appraisal and evaluation such as cost-benefit analysis will be examined. While focus will be on developing countries, many techniques covered will have applications in the U.S. context.
