This lecture is part of a larger series organized by Faculty Fellow Nilesh Fernando entitled "New Frontiers in Economic Development." First organized in 2013, the series focused on microeconomic poverty interventions. The series now focuses on larger-scale economic issues and their impact in developing countries by featuring distinguished economists who deliver a public lecture as well as participate in a master class with graduate-level economics students.

Jishnu Das, lead economist in the development research group at the World Bank, will deliver this lecture.

The series is cosponsored by the Department of Economics and Kellogg Institute for International Studies.
