Essays on economic, social and political issues concerning development in Bangladesh

posted on 2017-02-26, 22:52 authored by Nuzhat, Kanti Ananta
This thesis comprises of three self-contained, but related, chapters that examine the economic, social and political basis of development in Bangladesh. All studies use data from secondary sources for empirical analysis to examine the topic. The first chapter examines the long-term effects of a female stipend program on education, marriage, fertility and labor market outcomes of women. The second chapter shows the effects of increasing female education on assortative marriage, female autonomy and child‘s health. The final chapter explains how economic development is also closely related to political dynamics of a country.
