GV4D4 - week 1

« Back to GV4D4

These are my notes from September 26 for GV4D4 at the London School of Economics for the 2017-2018 school year. I'm taking this module as part of the one-year Inequalities and Social Science MSc program.

The usual disclaimer: all notes are my personal impressions and do not necessarily reflect the view of the lecturer. Feel free to email me (ilostwaldo, gmail) with any questions or corrections.


Introduction

Readings

(I didn’t do the readings in advance because, well, I didn’t know there were any—I hadn’t yet been offered a place in the course and so couldn’t access it through Moodle. But apparently you can view the reading list for any course at LSE through lse.rl.talis.com. Seems like there’s a lot of overlap with SO478, which is convenient for me.)

Inequality by Anthony B. Atkinson (introduction and chapter 1)

Capital in the Twenty-First Century by Thomas Piketty (introduction and chapters 1-2)

Lecture

Seminar

No seminar this week (probably since no one had been offered a place yet).
