People say its an easy unit which is definitely a lie. David is a hardworking lecturer (he takes only 3-hour lectures) but the content is a bit dry and the fact that there are no tutors or different allotted tutorial timings makes it harder to work through the unit. There is a lot of content to study which needs to be memorized for the final and the mid-semester was set to be particularly hard (average was at 57 and 30% failed). The unit isn't too hard but not as engaging as any other economics unit.

I would recommend this to people who doesnt like maths. only the minimum basic maths required. multiple choice questions in midsem and final were bit difficult but short answer and long answer questions were straightforward. intuitive and interesting consist of about 6 different Asian countries in one unit with few quest lectures. not difficult at all but not super easy. (David Kim was the lecturer)

Material isn't wholly uninteresting, but poor linkages between lectures/readings and assessables (espescially the mid-sem, which had multiple questions not even touched on by material) make the unit frustrating. Not too much math involved (other than basic production functions, etc.).

I just completed second year and this is the best Eco subject I've done by far, if you add in a little extra effort then you'll easily get a Distinction. Hardly any maths and it's more historical based

Enjoyable subject. Difficult Mid-Sem but fair Final. Some of the lectures can be a bit unclear in structure but put in the work and you'll get the results. Interesting subject matter.

This was a very enjoyable subject. David is an engaging lecturer, who explains things interestingly and very clearly. He obviously knows a lot about the growth experiences of the East Asian economies and what happened during the AFC. The content is not too difficult; there is a lot of memorisation with a country's historical growth experiences, its current challenges, as well as an evaluation of its policies. Incorporating economic models and theory to the content really helps you understand what's going on. Even if you don't, David did provide some 'refresher' notes on basic economic concepts from introductory macroeconomics. Also, we had a lot of guest lectures! A wonderful way of reinforcing the content we had learned. The assessments were 5 online quizzes, a mid-term and the final exam (which included one essay), but they're not overwhelming. I recommend this if you need to fill up an economics major (or, if you like East Asia)!
