Awakening Giants, Feet of Clay: assessing the economic rise of China and India

STICERD/DESTIN public lecture


Professor Pranab Bardhan will deliver two lectures on the evening of 4 and 5 May. In this second lecture he will reflect on the general and contrasting features of capitalism as it is developing in the two countries, on the political economy of the governance process in the context of the complex relationship between democracy (or lack of it) and development, and the nature of accountability failures in both countries.

Pranab Bardhan is Professor of Economics at the University of California, Berkeley. He has done theoretical and field studies research on rural institutions in poor countries, on political economy of development policies, and on international trade. A part of his work is in the interdisciplinary area of economics, political science, and social anthropology. He was Chief Editor of the Journal of Development Economics for 1985-2003. He was the co-chair of the MacArthur Foundation-funded Network on the Effects of Inequality on Economic Performance for 1996-2007. He held the Distinguished Fulbright Siena Chair at the University of Siena, Italy in 2008-9. He is the BP Centennial Professor at London School of Economics for 2010 and 2011.

His new book, Awakening Giants, Feet of Clay: Assessing the Economic Rise of China and India is published by Princeton University Press, April 2010.
