Financing the Future Webinar Series with Prof. James A. Robinson

Dear Young Scholars,

We invite you to join us for the second session of the Financing the Future Webinar Series with author, political scientist and economist Prof. James A. Robinson!

In this session we examine historical examples of prosperity and ruin: what is the pattern shown here and can it be intentionally recreated or avoided? Presenting from his book co-authored with Daron Acemoglu, “Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity and Poverty”, Prof. Robinson will present the key components that must be included within all political, and economic institutions for prosperity to flow. Equipped with this, we will examine the theme of extraction and delve further into how exclusive governments, enterprises, private banks, operate.

Join us for a Webinar!
