The 2022 Paul Streeten Distinguished Lecture in Global Development Policy: The Future of Development Strategy
About this event:
The COVID-19 pandemic has reversed some of the crucial gains in economic development and poverty reduction achieved in recent decades. But even prior to the pandemic, there were signs the golden age of economic development was coming to an end, as the export-oriented industrialization model begun running out of steam.
In the years ahead, it is unlikely low-income countries will be able to return to the accelerated development paths they were previously on. New models will need to be considered, models that perhaps place less emphasis on promoting trade and industrialization and more emphasis on creating decent jobs and building a domestic middle class.
On Wednesday, March 23, join the Boston University Global Development Policy Center, the Boston University Institute for Economic Development and the Boston University Department of Economics for the annual Paul Streeten Distinguished Lecture in Global Development Policy, presented by Dani Rodrik, renowned economist and Ford Foundation Professor of International Political Economy at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
The Streeten Lecture celebrates the example and legacy of Boston University Professor Paul Streeten as an eminent economist and interdisciplinary scholar whose work had a significant impact on global development policy.
A reception will follow the lecture.
