Prerequisites: Prior to enrollment, this course requires you to have completed either one 200-level course or two 100-level courses in any of the following subject areas: Macroeconomics.


Despite significant geographic, cultural, and political differences, the many countries of Latin America pursued very similar strategies for economic growth and structural development throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Seeking to understand the role economics plays in shaping the related national, political, cultural, and social makeup, this course will explore the historical evolution of how such economic growth strategies were implemented at the national level and to what extent larger regional growth was the result.

The course focuses on the recent decades for the region, signaled by high volatility, starting with the 1994 Mexican tequila crisis, the 1999 real devaluation of the Brazilian currency, and the 2001 Argentine collapse. It also assesses the last two decades during which Latin America has entered a path of sustained economic recovery - with some exceptions.
