Demographic Economics
ECON 207
Spring 2021
Section: 01  

This course explores topics in demographic economics. It is divided into three main modules: macroeconomic effects of demographics, human migration, and family economics. In the first module, we explore issues such as population aging, population distribution across the globe, the Demographic Transition and the Industrial Revolution, and the environmental effects of population growth. In the second module, we discuss the costs and benefits of human migration from the point of view of both sending and receiving countries. Finally, in the third module, we investigate how economic incentives shape family formation and family decision-making.
