William Easterly - The Tyranny of Experts: Economists, Dictators, and the Forgotten Rights of the Poor

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In his new study of global poverty, Easterly, director of NYU’s Development Research Institute and author of The White Man’s Burden, addresses the mismatch between merely technical solutions and systemic problems. He shows how quick and immediate remedies not only leave poverty intact but often bolster autocratic governments; his alternative would be an approach grounded in freedom and respect for the individual.
