Research Interests:  James is interested in questions relating to economic development in Sub-Saharan Africa, particularly around education, health, and natural disasters. Given projected trends in population growth and climate change, I believe that the next 50 years will bring about rapid change to the region, giving economic research there a clear normative and positive aim: to promote economic development for the poor while advancing our understanding of humanity's transition from an agrarian to industrial society.
