welcome

Update afternoon of Dec 12: your papers are graded! For the most part, they were good and I enjoyed reading them. I'm in the process of uploading grades on papers, presentations, and final papers.
Thanks again for a fun semester! I especially enjoyed the range of topics in your presentations - I learned a lot.
Have a good break!

Welcome to the website for Economics 499, section 003, on the economics of Africa (fall 2018). This website will have information on assignments, exams, readings, and lecture notes.

There is not a required textbook for this class, although there will be regularly assigned readings. The syllabus is available on the syllabus page. I look forward to seeing you in class!
