Fall 2011

This course is an introduction to the mathematical theory of growth. We will also look at some recent empirical studies of growth and relative income.

We will be using Daron Acemoglu's book Introduction to Economic Growth as our main text.

The Syllabus for the Spring 2011 is available now.

You may find it useful to read the handout on rates of change.

Many of the readings can be downloaded or linked. Most are working paper versions, but they are close to the published versions.
