Reducing poverty in the world
Prof. Bhagwati will cite the new Pope’s emphasis on the poor rather than the recent diversion by the Occupy Movement to focus on the rich. But the question remains: how is poverty to be effectively reduced? Here, Professor BHAGWATI, who addressed this very issue in India when he was working on the problem, will draw on India’s experience and the lessons it offers to the Pope and others in finding effective ways to reduce poverty. He will draw on the recent book he has published with Professor PANAGARIYA, WHY GROWTH MATTERS, which precisely tackles this issue, and which was recently selected as one of the Best Books of 2013 by the Financial Times. Watch live the lecture on 19th March at 3:30pm CET / 2:30pm GMT.
When: 19th March 2014 at 3:30pm CET / 2:30pm GMT (check time around the world).
