Event description

Description

Economic growth can be extraordinarily rapid in developing countries. But it is often uneven, leaving whole segments of society behind. Such unevenness can serve to both inspire and frustrate, and so lead to social
conflict even as overall economic conditions improve. These issues are crucially important in North America and Europe today.
Professor Ray will discuss what we can learn about the uneven-growth/conflict nexus from developing countries, where such issues have never been far from the surface.

Debraj Ray is Julius Silver Professor in the Faculty of Arts and Science, and Professor of Economics at New York University.
