Graded assignment in comparative political economy at master level!
This is the assignment details:
-Write a scientific paper about what causes economic growth and/or human development. The paper should include a quantitative analysis of the significance of these causes.
The dependent variable is optional, but it should be an indicator of human development.
Successful candidates should have clearly defined variables derived from different theories with
multiple references. The paper should be well structured, preferably in IMRAD-style.
It should be sufficient for a top mark to do a multivariate model estimated by OLS, but
candidates who try to do more advanced models should be rewarded.-
Please do not take this assignment if you do not have knowledge in Economics, politics, and quantitative social science methods.
Also, during the obligatory assignments we needed to use R or Stata, where theoretical knowledge was used to test hypotheses about what causes economic growth and/or human development. You would need to do this now also.
I have attached one of the assignments done in class, and some lecture notes. There are also some other resources that might be useful.
Again, please do not take this assignment if you cannot complete it satisfactory, as this is a graded assignment.
looking forward to a reasonable quote.
