PUBLIC LECTURE: How Nations Succeed
|How Nations Succeed : A public lecture from Harvard University’s Professor Lant Pritchett
Economic growth and development depend on institutions such as administrative capability of the state and the capability of governments to affect the course of events through policies and programs.
Harvard University’s Professor Lant Pritchett will discuss how some countries manage to consistently fail to acquire capability and how growth dynamics depend on institutional dynamics. He will also discuss how to sabotage the techniques of economic development failure: such as the shallow mimicry of institutions, and unrealistic expectations about the pace of institutional change.
Lant Pritchett is Professor of the Practice of International Development at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and works as a consultant to Google.org
This event is supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and is being held as part of the 10th Australasian Development Economics Workshop.
