"Development Management under Globalization"

2nd Semester, 2005-2006

This course deals with the frontier-yet-fundamental issues of ‘Development Management under Globalization (グローバリゼーション下の開発マネジメント)’. The course covers selected topics such as: economic development under the changing environment of globalization (risks and benefits associated with globalization, rise and demise of the East Asian growth model, Africa’s marginalization, convergence club under globalization); international trade and development (inward- vs. outward-oriented development strategies and trade reforms, regionalism vs. multilateralism, WTO and industrial promotion); external financing of development (ODA, FDI and multilateral corporations, portfolio flows, debt & financial crises); managing open-economy development (BOP management, the order of liberalization, exchange rate regimes and monetary policy rules, fiscal sustainability, crisis management); and toward governance and quality of growth under globalization (growth and equity under globalization, localization under globalization).

Reviews of Microeconomics and International Trade/Finance theories will be given in relation to the subjects covered in the course. Consecutive enrollment from Development Economics will be highly effective.

Date of Entry

I will give a special review session on microeconomic principles. In this session, I will cover only those fundamental concepts and theories that you need in order to understand basic international trade theories in development context. Those who do not have formal background in microeconomics should attend. In lectures on January 24 and 31, I presume that students have sufficient knowledge of basic micro principles.
