We Don't Know How to Solve Global Poverty and That's a Good Thing

STICERD/ DESTIN public lecture


This lecture argues that occasions when development economists were more certain about 'the solution to global poverty' have often led to harmful consequences for the world's poor in the long-run. Sceptical criticism is a creative force that redirects attention and effort away from centrally-directed expert solutions towards effective decentralised problem-solving.

William Easterly is professor of economics at New York University, joint with Africa House, and co-director of NYU's Development Research Institute.
