|7th Australasian Development Economics Workshop @ UWA Business School - Keynote Speech : Can Entrepreneurship Programs Transform the Economic Lives of the Poor?
Microcredit programs are widely promoted by governments and non-governmental organisations in many developing countries, as a means to alleviate poverty through income generation activities. BRAC, which was established in 1972, is currently the largest non-governmental organisation operating in the world. In this lecture Professor Burgess will discuss his research on an impact evaluation of BRAC programs which try to promote entrepreneurship amongst the ultra-poor, both in Bangladesh and in sub-Saharan Africa.
Professor Burgess is a Professor of Economics and Director of the Economic Organisation and Public Policy Programme at the London School of Economics. His areas of research interest include development economics, public economics,
political economy, labor economics and environmental economics.
