  • The predominant and narrow view that development equates to growth in income, expansion of infrastructure and rise in the standard of living is no longer seen as comprehensive or adequate. The World is also coming to terms with the inadequacy of mere economic growth and is struggling to find a development paradigm that is pragmatic to implement while ensuring sustainability at the same time. This course is about exploring an alternate development paradigm that draws lessons and inspiration from success stories across the world. It is built on the capability approach that many development economists are increasingly subscribing to and will help the student understand how building human and social capital will result in economic consequences.
