The central focus of this course is institutions and organization and how these impacted technological change and economic growth in different periods. We investigate: cross-country differences in long-term economic growth and competing explanations for the divergent outcomes; migration and its impact on economic development and growth; the role of property rights, such as patent laws, and their effect on innovations and economic growth; the development of financial institutions and economic growth; and international trade and economic development.
