L'analyse de données quantitatives est devenue aujourd'hui une pratique incontournable dans tous les métiers liés aux sciences sociales. Ces analyses sont utilisées pour comprendre des phénomènes économiques et financiers, décrire la nature de la relation entre des personnes, des objets ou des événements, ou encore anticiper les conséquences d’une décision.

Ce cours vous permettra d’acquérir les premiers concepts nécessaires pour construire rigoureusement des modèles économétriques. Il est constitué de leçons construites à partir de cas pratiques originaux interrogeant la vie quotidienne. Mentionnons parmi d’autres:

  • Comment réussir une campagne de financement collaboratif ?
  • Quels sont les déterminants des écarts salariaux entre les hommes et les femmes ?
  • Existe-t-il encore un lien entre l’inflation et le chômage ?
  • Peut-on prédire un changement de niveau de risque sur les marchés financiers ?
  • Existe-t-il un lien entre le niveau de revenu et le sentiment d’être en bonne santé ?
  • Le salaire est-il la seule motivation économique des travailleurs ?
  • Le prix de vente des œuvres de Picasso correspond-il à sa valeur de catalogue ?

Ce cours contient huit leçons. Il permet tout d’abord de comprendre l’étendue et les limites de l’utilisation de l’économétrie en sciences sociales. La formation se poursuit en étudiant le modèle linéaire, tout en insistant sur la manière dont la construction d’un tel modèle permet d'identifier et de quantifier diverses relations entre les données mesurées. Il élabore également les propriétés statistiques de l'estimateur de moindres carrés, permettant ensuite de montrer comment il est possible de vérifier ou de tester des hypothèses économiques en pratique. Des leçons particulières sont consacrées à l’analyse de données fréquemment utilisées dans la pratique de l'économétrie, telles que les variables catégorielles et les séries temporelles.

The macroeconomy is the sum of all our productive efforts, spending, and income. Economic outcomes are the result of our complex interactions with other people, businesses, the government, as well as with people and businesses globally. In this economics course, you will learn the basic stylized framework that economists use to think about, account for, measure and explain these complex interactions and outcomes.

In the first half of the course, we consider how households decide how much to work and how to spend and save money. We will also look at how businesses make economic decisions such as how many workers to hire and how many machines and buildings to use to produce their products.

In the second half of the course, we consider how different policies can potentially enhance or distort market outcomes by offsetting, alleviating, or amplifying these inefficiencies. Our focus will be on five aspects of economic policy:

  • labor market policies and unemployment
  • R&D and innovation policies
  • fiscal policies and taxation
  • monetary policy and inflation 
  • free-trade policies

This course satisfies the Social-Behavioral Sciences (SB) general studies requirement at Arizona State University. This course may satisfy a general education requirement at other institutions; however, it is strongly encouraged that you consult with your institution of choice to determine how these credits will be applied to their degree requirements prior to transferring the credit.

As Parcerias Público-Privadas (PPPs) tornaram-se um instrumento essencial para o crescimento produtivo, econômico e social dos países da América Latina e Caribe. Ao desenvolver e programar as PPPs observam-se restrições nas capacidades técnicas dos responsáveis, em especial no setor público.

Para preencher esta lacuna, IDBx desenvolveu este curso, o primeiro MOOC disponível em Português para aprender a planejar, projetar e implementar PPPs para projetos de desenvolvimento no Brasil e na América Latina e no Caribe.

Este curso busca dividir experiências de instituições internacionais líderes com a finalidade de ajudar a diminuir lacunas de conhecimento na utilização efetiva das PPPs, oferecendo ideias, soluções e lições aprendidas para lidar com os desafios ou restrições às capacidades técnicas e administrativas do setor público da região. As lições contidas no MOOC se aplicam a diferentes setores como infraestrutura, saúde, educação, banda larga e setor fiscal, levando em conta contextos nacionais de vários países da região, incluindo Brasil, Peru, México e Colômbia.

Para este efeito, o curso coloca à disposição dos participantes leituras selecionadas, vídeos, tutoriais de análises e outros recursos de aprendizagem.

O curso é baseado nos conteúdos do Guia de Referência sobre Parcerias Público-Privadas (PPPs) versão 2.0, desenvolvido e publicado em 2014 pelo BID, Banco Mundial (BM) e Banco Asiático de Desenvolvimento (ADB).

A elaboração deste curso foi financiada pelo Programa Especial para o Desenvolvimento Institucional (SPID). Mais informações em SPID.

Las economías latinoamericanas han padecido en forma generalizada la falta de crecimiento, así como una gran inestabilidad macroeconómica. Es poco lo que se ha ganado en productividad y ha habido numerosos episodios de recesiones profundas, crisis bancarias, inflación desbordada y escasez de divisas. Todos estos factores afectan la calidad de vida en América Latina. En realidad, solo con mayores niveles de crecimiento sostenido a través del tiempo, es posible pensar que América Latina supere la pobreza y mejore el nivel de vida de la región.

Este curso analiza los principales desafíos que la región enfrenta en cuanto a su crecimiento económico y estabilidad macroeconómica. Los contenidos serán presentados en un lenguaje simple y comprensible para no especialistas en el tema.

Este curso pretende abordar las siguientes preguntas:

  • ¿Cuáles son los desafíos que enfrentan los países en América Latina y el Caribe para incrementar sus niveles de inversión privada?
  • ¿Por qué la productividad en la región es más baja comparada con la de otras regiones?
  • ¿Cuáles son los principales desafíos que enfrenta la infraestructura, sea esta la relacionada con agua y saneamiento básico, el transporte o la energía, para mencionar algunos sectores?
  • ¿Por qué los recursos naturales, que abundan en la región, no siempre han dado los resultados esperados para propiciar el desarrollo regional?
  • ¿Cómo se origina la inestabilidad económica y las crisis macroeconómicas?
  • ¿Cuál es el rol de las políticas monetarias, cambiarias y financieras para alcanzar estabilidad macroeconómica?

La preparación de este curso fue financiada por el Programa Especial para el Desarrollo Institucional (SPID) del Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo. Mayor información en la página web del SPID.
