Fall 2014: High Profile Speaker Event with William Easterly
IPID Presents “The Tyranny of Experts: The Neglect of Democracy and Human Rights in Economic Development” with William Easterly
“The admirable fight against global poverty has a blind spot on democracy and human rights, which are both good in themselves and also the most well-proven and lasting path out of poverty. Experts in development have too often unintentionally provided a rationale for oppressive autocrats and unenlightened US foreign policy in poor countries.”
When: Tuesday, October 21st, 1:00 – 2:30 PM
Where: 3M Auditorium, Carlson School of Management
What: Come hear one the world’s most famous development economists give a special lecture at the University of Minnesota!
