"Empirical Methods
in Development Economics"

9:00 a 13:00 p.m. /10 sesiones 40 horas
Prerrequisitos: Econometría Avanzada y Microeconomía avanzada I

The primary goal of this two-week course is to expose students to the emerging and critical issues studied in development economics. Topics covered will include the potential outcomes framework, randomized experiments, natural experiments, panel data models, matching, instrumental variables and regression discontinuity designs. In each case, we will reinforce the concepts by reading and discussing papers that utilize these research designs in development economics.


Profesores Andrea Velásquez y Ryan Brown

Andrea Velásquez is an Assistant Professor at University of Colorado, Denver. Her research interests lie at the intersection of development, labor and population economics, with a special interest in the topics of data quality, conflict, and migration. In addition, she has had extensive data collection experience as a member of the team that designed and executed the third wave of the Mexican Family Life Survey. This innovative and extremely rich longitudinal data has been an extraordinary resource for the exploration of her research agenda.

Ryan Brown is an Assistant Professor at University of Colorado, Denver. His work applies econometric techniques to population representative data in both developed and developing country settings, to examine how changes in the social and physical environment impact health and human capital accumulation.

"Long-Run Growth and Development"

Junio 27a julio 1 y julio 6 al 8, 8:00 -12:00 / Julio 4 y 5, 14:00 - 18:00
10 sesiones 40 horas
Prerrequisitos: Macroeconomía Avanzada I,
Econometría Avanzada y conocimientos básicos de Stata.

Ever since the emergence of economics as a discipline, economists have been trying to provide an answer to what causes some countries to be poor and others rich. Are economies¿ fates determined by their geographical endowments? Their market size? Their culture? Their institutions? What is the effect of globalization on development? What are the historical roots of contemporary economic performance? These questions are central to the research agenda of growth and development economists. In this summer course we will study some of the answers that have been proposed to these and other questions.

The lectures will focus on the determinants of long-run growth and development. In particular, it will discuss the importance of market size and trade for growth; the contribution of unified growth theory to our understanding of the transition from Malthusian to modern growth; the role of spatial heterogeneity for aggregate growth; cultural, linguistic and ethnic heterogeneity, and its relation to long-run development; and the bio-geographical origins of comparative development. Basic knowledge of Stata is a prerequisite, and students will learn how to use basic QGIS mapping software.

"Dynamic Games and Contracts"

8:00 -12:00 / 10 sesiones 40 horas
Prerrequisitos: Probabilidad, Microeconomía Avanzada I,
Macroeconomía avanzada I, Economía Matemática.

Most of the problems studied in economics are inherently dynamic. This course covers a wide array of dynamic problems in economics, from the design of contracts for incentive provision, to firm dynamics. All these problems use common techniques that facilitate their study. More over, these methods have applications beyond those shown in the course, most notably in finance and macroeconomics. The course begins with an introduction to dynamic models in continuous time and the theory of stochastic processes. These techniques are later applied to the theory of the firm, economic growth, contract theory and game theory. Finally, the course emphasizes models of imperfect information, these models, where learning and timing are central issues, are crucial in modern economic theory. The course covers contract design under moral hazard, and how available information affects the structure of incentives, as well as the new models of Bayesian Persuasion, and models of learning and signal extraction (filtering).
