With all the discussion about global poverty, inequality, and the billions of people living with almost nothing, why can’t governments, development banks, think-tanks, academics, NGOs and many others just fix the problem? Why is it that seemingly obvious reforms never happen? Why are prosperity and equity so elusive?
Join us for an insightful lecture by Dr. Marcelo Giugale, Senior Director at the World Bank Group’s Global Practice on Macroeconomics and Fiscal Management. In his new book, Economic Development: What Everyone Needs to Know, Dr. Giugale takes readers into the trenches of economic development, showing what practitioners are actually doing as well as and explaining the issues, dilemmas, options, frustrations and opportunities they face, day in and day out.
