ECN480.2 Economic Growth (Tsinghua U)

Taught in English. As of Spring 2018, this course counts as an ECN 300+ option for SU Management majors. Economic growth is one of the two major issues in macroeconomics and this course is designed to deepen the knowledge of intermediate macroeconomics in this direction. After exploring classical and neoclassical growth theories, the emphasis is on the new growth theories that arose in the last two decades, including the analyses of technology, human capital, social infrastructure, and natural resources. The aim is to understand the stylized facts in modern economic growth, to understand the future direction of China’s economic development, and to lay down a theoretical foundation for further studies in advanced macroeconomics or economic growth and development. For SU students, this course counts as an economics elective only. (TU# 30510883)
