Teaching Material

For links to syllabi, slides, etc, go back to the teaching link and click on “Courses and Slides.” If you use any of this material in your teaching, slides, etc., you must provide explicit acknowledgment and a link to my webpage.


If you are an instructor and looking for answers to problem sets in my book, Development Economics, email me with your request and some evidence that you are an affiliated instructor at an institution, such as a faculty list or webpage. That list should contain your official email address, and you should email me from that address. Thanks, and apologies for the red tape.
