World In Flux: The Future of Global Economics

On Saturday, October 3, I took part  in a panel discussion on the future of the global economy. The discussion was part of a series of Alumni Weekend presentations entitled “World in Flux.” Some of the questions we discussed were the future of international development, whether COVID-19 will be the tipping point in a restructuring of the global economic system, and whether pandemic recovery efforts will put the world on a path toward a greener economy.

The other speakers were Kevin Gallagher, Pardee School Professor of Global Development Policy & Director, Global Development Policy Center and Perry Mehrling, Pardee School Professor of International Political Economy. The session was moderated by Adil Najam, Dean of the Pardee School.
