ECON 2456 Economics of Poverty Reading List
Updated: 2010-12-09

Nota Bene: I reserve the right to make reasonable changes to the schedule as necessary, so please check back periodically.

I will strongly emphasize the required readings below. You are responsible for completing all of these, even if we don't discuss them in class. However, the starred optional sections in Wolff are not required unless otherwise noted.

The remainder of the readings will add depth to your understanding of the material, and you should strive to complete at least a few of them. To access restricted journal articles from off-campus, use the UConn library remote access system.
