The prof was fine but I did not enjoy the course material. It was divided into three parts. The first part was simple and easy to understand. The second was pure economics, which wasn't appealing to me. And lastly, the third part was mainly about policies.

Took this course as an elective and really enjoyed it! The prof is interesting and very knowledgeable, the book was easy to read and the tests and assignments weren't too hard. This course was a real eye opener into the world of poverty.

This prof is incredibly enjoyable. He is knowledgable and active in the field. I found the textbook very easy to read, as the heading and chapters followed the exact same format as the lectures. It is quite heavy on the econ, so I would recommend taking micro econ before this course.

Interesting class, pretty easy, they use the same quizzes year to year. Henson is interesting and very British but the sub prof is very difficult to understand.
