Read Ascent After Decline
The great recession of 2007-09 has left permanent scars in the world economy, and the global recovery has lost steam. Advanced economies are still struggling with high unemployment and debt, and the remarkable role that emerging markets have played as engines of the recovery is no longer certain. In this new book, co-edited by Otaviano Canuto and Danny M. Leipziger, more than a dozen distinguished contributors scan the economic horizon, spell out the new fiscal reality, and highlight the policy choices on which economic regrowth will depend.
From left to right, the panelists for the discussion are:
Sector Director, Poverty Reduction & Economic Management, Africa Region, World Bank
Vice President, Poverty Reduction & Economic Management, World Bank
Danny M. Leipziger
Professor of International Business, George Washington University
Deputy Managing Director, International Monetary Fund
Senior Fellow, Center for Global Development & Peterson Institute for International Economics
