About this event
Can Economics be harnessed for the common good? Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo’s bestselling book “Good Economics for Hard Times” makes the case for how economics can help us solve the toughest problems in some of the poorest places in the world. Based on a body of work that was awarded the Nobel in economics sciences, the book offers hope and practical solutions for a world without poverty.
