ECN 460 African Economies (3 credits)
Africa is a continent of contrasts. The poorest country in the world is in Africa and the world’s highest rate of economic growth is also found in an African country. In this course, we will assess the economic performance of contemporary African countries and then we will analyze the reasons for their differing growth patterns. In the process, we will study what is produced, how it is produced and for whom it is produced. Satisfies Social Science GER.
