Econ 274 Winter 2015

Published on Author Mike

China FertilityWe’ll use the same books as in the fall, see the ISBN’s below if you’re seeking to order (used) books in advance.

The structure of the course will be similar to the fall, but I will modify the details of paper assignments, add (and subtract) references and associated readings, perhaps assign class members to lead off discussion each day, and otherwise tweak things. Check periodically for details. Note the dates for SSA, for the first Friday meeting in the Reeves Center (not Huntley), and for speakers Thurs Mar 26 and Thur Apr 2.
