Emerging Markets: The End of Growth?

Dani Rodrik, Ford Foundation Professor of International Political Economy, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

Emerging Markets: The End of Growth? by The Chicago Council

Emerging markets seem to be in trouble. Long touted as the new economic engines of the world, places such as China, Brazil, Russia, or Turkey have lost their luster. Growth is down, investors are retreating, and corruption and political instability seem to be on the rise. Yet many emerging markets boast world-class firms, large middle-classes, and vast natural resources. What fueled the boom of the last decades and the current bust? Can emerging economies recover and grow? Please join the Council on Global Affairs and Dani Rodrik for an examination of the current situation and future trends in emerging markets.

Rodrik’s latest book, Economics Rules: The Rights and Wrongs of the Dismal Science, will be available for purchase and signing from The Book Cellar after the program.
