Upcoming May Events:

The Price of Inequality : How Today's Divided Society Endangers Our Future

By J. Stiglitz

 

Friday, June 8 at 12:00 PM in IFC Auditorium

 

The top 1 percent of Americans control 40 percent of the nation’s wealth. And, as Joseph E. Stiglitz explains, while those at the top enjoy the best health care, education, and benefits of wealth, they fail to realize that “their fate is bound up with how the other 99 percent live.”
Stiglitz draws on his deep understanding of economics to show that growing inequality is not inevitable: moneyed interests compound their wealth by stifling true, dynamic capitalism. They have made America the most unequal advanced industrial country while crippling growth, trampling on the rule of law, and undermining democracy. The result: a divided society that cannot tackle its most pressing problems. With characteristic insight, Stiglitz examines our current state, then teases out its implications for democracy, for monetary and budgetary policy, and for globalization. He closes with a plan for a more just and prosperous future.

Some Small Coutries do it Better: Rapid Growth and Its Causes in Singapore, Finland, and Ireland

 

Monday, June 11 at 12:00 PM in J1-050 Auditorium

 

Rather than rely mainly on investment to drive growth, Singapore, Finland, and Ireland concentrated on building human capital to attract technology-intensive foreign direct investment and to enable domestic firms to export high-value global products and services. This approach is better suited for many small resource-poor countries looking to compete in the global environment of the 21st century. This book provides a roadmap of growth that will be of interest to policy makers,
practitioners, and academics alike.

Winner Take All: China’s Race for Resources and What it Means for the World

By Dambisa Moyo

 

Wednesday, June 13 at 12:00 PM in Preston Auditorium

 

Our planet's resources are running out. The media constantly screams the warnings of impending doom - shortages of arable land, clashes over water, and political Armageddon as global demand for fossil fuels and other essential commodities far outstrips supply. The shortages of commodities can and will have a dramatic effect on the way we all live. The author explains the current commodity
dynamics, focusing in particular on the implications of China’s rush for resources around the world.

Indigenous Peoples, Poverty, and Development
Edited by Gillette H. Hall and Harry Anthony Patrinos

 

Monday, June 18 at 12:00 PM in J1-050

 

This is the first book that documents poverty systematically for the world’s indigenous peoples in developing regions in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Provocatively, the book finds marked differences in results across regions, with rapid poverty reduction among indigenous (and non-indigenous) populations in Asia contrasting with relative stagnation—and, in some cases, falling back—in Latin America and Africa.

Likeonomics: The Unexpected Truth Behind Earning Trust, Influencing Behavior, and Inspiring Action

By Rohit Bhargava

 

Wednesday, June 20 at 12:00 PM in J1-050

 

People decide who to trust, what advice to heed, and which individuals to forge personal or transactional relationships with based on a simple metric of believability. Success, in turn, comes from understanding one basic principle: how to be more trusted. Likeonomics offers a new vision of a world beyond Facebook where personal relationships, likeability, brutal honesty, extreme simplicity, and basic humanity are behind everything from multi-million dollar mergers to record-breaking product sales. There is a real ROI to likeability, and exactly how big it is will amaze you.

Previous Events in 2012:

Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World.

By Ian Bremmer

 Tuesday, May 22 at 12:30 PM in J1-050 Auditorium

 

A world order in which no single country or durable alliance of countries can meet the challenges of global leadership. If the worst threatened—a rogue nuclear state with a horrible surprise, a global health crisis, the collapse of financial institutions from New York to Shanghai and Mumbai—where would the world look for leadership? The United States, with its paralyzed politics and battered balance sheet? A European Union reeling from self-inflicted wounds? China’s “people’s democracy”? Perhaps Brazil, Turkey, or India, the geopolitical Rookies of the Year? Or some grand coalition of survivors, the last nations standing after half a decade of recession-induced turmoil?

How about none of the above?

What is Open Access and why is the Bank's new Open Access policy so significant for development?  

 The World Bank will be adopting an Open Access Policy as of July 1, which will make World Bank research freely available online without charge or restrictions, making a wealth of knowledge available to anyone in the world.  To underpin this new Open Access policy, the World Bank recently launched the World Bank Open Knowledge Repository (OKR) as its new home for all of the Bank’s research outputs. In addition, to facilitate use of online content, the Bank became the first major international organization to adopt a set of copyright licenses from Creative Commons that will allow anyone to use, re-use, and distribute Bank research and knowledge products free of charge as long as the Bank is attributed.

Investors in the Cold: How Most Governments Ignore FDI When It Comes Knocking (Global Investment Promotion Benchmarking 2012)

 

Monday, May 21 at 12:00 PM in J1-050 Auditorium

 

Global Investment Promotion Best Practices (GIPB 2012) surveys the ability of investment promotion agencies (IPAs) to promote foreign direct investment by meeting prospective foreign investors' needs for country and sector information during the site selection process. GIPB 2012 shows that IPAs are making increasingly helpful information available on their Web sites, but the ability of investment agencies to respond professionally to direct investors’ inquiries has actually declined since the last report.

Draining Development?  Controlling Flows of Illicit Funds from Developing Countries

By Peter Reuter

 

Thursday, May 17, at 12:30 PM in J1-050 Auditorium

 

A growing concern among those interested in economic development is the realization that hundreds of billions of dollars are illicitly flowing out of developing countries to tax havens and other financial centers in the developed world. This volume assesses the dynamics of these flows, much of which is from corruption and tax evasion. What causes them, what are their consequences and how might they be controlled?

From Right to Reality: Incentives, Labor and the Challenge of Universal Social Protection in Latin America and the Caribbean

Wednesday, May 16, at 3:00 PM in J1-050 Auditorium

The book, targeted to policy-makers, academics and practitioners, reviews the main programs—pensions, health, unemployment insurance, active labor programs, and safety nets—and presents a vision and practical recommendations to expand coverage, improve program design, and create conditions that enable more and better jobs.

Reshaping Tomorrow: Is South Asia Ready for the Big Leap?
Edited by Ejaz Ghani

 

Tuesday, May 8, at 12:00 PM in J1-050 Auditorium

 

What will India, and the other South Asian countries, look like in 2025? There are two contrasting opinions on this matter, the optimistic view and the pessimistic view. The optimistic outlook is that India will achieve double-digit growth rates. South Asia too will experience strong growth, primarily due to the growth of India. The pessimistic outlook is that growth will be derailed by the many transformational challenges the region faces.


There will be a panel discussion focused on four questions:
I. What will South Asia look like in 2025?
II. Is there empirical evidence to support the optimistic outlook?
III. What about the pessimistic outlook?
IV. What should policy makers do today to reshape tomorrow?

Demystifying the Chinese Economy

By Justin Lin

 

Friday, May 4, at 12:30 PM in Preston Auditorium

 

Before the 18th century, China was the largest and one of the most advanced economies in the world but declined precipitately and degenerated into one of the world’s poorest economies by the 19th century. Following market-oriented reforms introduced in 1979, China has grown to become the
world’s most dynamic economy. The book provides a consistent framework to analyze the causes behind the dramatic changes and draws lessons from China’s experience for other developing countries.

Jobs or Growth: Which Comes First

Wednesday, April 18, at 4:30 PM in Preston Auditorium

 

Today 910 million people at work across the globe live in poverty. To cope with the growth of the working age population, more than 300 million jobs will be needed in South Asia, the Middle East and Africa in the coming decades. Jobs are critically important for development, however, there is a debate about when a growth strategy is enough, and when a jobs strategy is needed.

 Working Hard, Working Poor: A Global Journey

 

Friday, April 13, at 12:00 PM in J1-050 Auditorium

 

It is not a lack of work that defines the poor in many economies. Actually most adults in poverty do work. However, a great many of those who work are poor. The concept of the working poor intrigues and spotlights the need to understand labor markets and labor earnings in the developing world in order to understand global poverty.

Living through Crises: How the Food, Fuel, and Financial Shocks Affect the Poor

 

Tuesday, April 10, at 12:30 PM in J1-050 Auditorium

 

 

What did the global food, fuel, and financial crises of 2008-11 mean to people in the developing world? How did people cope? What help was available? This book brings together community studies conducted during 2008-2011 in 17 countries on the local impacts of global shocks. It gives voice
to the poor and vulnerable; analyzes crises transmission channels and the coping responses used by the affected; and surveys the sources of formal and informal support available to deal with shocks and their effectiveness.
