Length: 2-3 pages, double-spaced, font 12 Roman
You are a development advisor instructing leaders of one of the following countries:
Japan, Russia, India, South Korea, Nigeria or Bangladesh
Identify the three most pressing development challenges in your country and provide a few reasons for your choices. Next, use insights from rational choice, institutions, global economic structure and culture to understand the causes of the problems that you have identified. You don’t have to apply all the theories—just use the ones that you think are most relevant for the identified problems. Lastly, offer policy solutions to address some of the problems using any of the theoretical traditions.
For example, let’s say that you have identified discrimination against women as important development challenge in India. You find that cultural values privilege men, lead to female infanticide and social traditions in rural areas (i.e. dowry payments) keep women from being treated equally. You offer advice to address the problem by launching an education campaign with funds from the World Bank and also suggest some type of quota system for women to be instituted in small businesses, local governments etc.
