Geography  466
(Professor  Harrington)

This reading-intensive course provides a theoretical overview of sub-national, regional economic growth and structural change, including the roles of interregional interaction and international trade, technological change, social and legal institutions.  We'll emphasize inter-regional disparities in the context of relatively wealthy countries.  We'll examine the constraints and effectiveness of government (and other organizationsí) policies.
