This is an advanced course covering the key issues of economic inequality. This course is reading- and writing-intensive and is organized as a series of discussions. This course focuses on two main aspects: (i) the analysis of economic inequalities and (ii) the interaction between inequality and economic development. It will address the following questions from a theoretical perspective and/or an empirical perspective:

1. How does inequality evolve over time, and how does the evolution of inequality couple with the dynamics of economic development?

2. What are the determinants of inequality, and which theories can account for the level of economic inequalities and its dynamics?

3. How do public policies affect inequalities, and what types of policies can foster equitable growth?
