17.556 Political Economy of Development (MIT)
This course examines theoretical and empirical approaches to understanding the process of late development. Topics include the role of the state in alleviating or exacerbating poverty, the politics of industrial policy and planning and the relationship between institutional change and growth. How over the past century have some of the world's poorest nations achieved wealth? How have others remained mired in poverty? What are the social consequences for alternative strategies of development?

Given two gold mines with the same amount of gold in the ground, the same cost of extraction and the same worldwide demand, why is one mine valued 10 times more than the other? Because one has local support and the other doesn't, argues Wharton professor Witold Henisz. In a new research paper, Henisz and his colleagues show how cooperating with, rather than antagonizing, external stakeholders generates sustainable shareholder value for companies around the world.Author(s): Knowledge@Wharton
