Watch: Professor François Bourguignon talks ‘The globalisation of inequality’

Watch: François Bourguignon’s lecture on ‘The globalisation of inequality‘.

François Bourguignon, a French national, is the Director and founder of the Paris School of Economics. Prior to this, he served as Senior Vice President for Development Economics and Chief Economist at the World Bank for four years (2003-2007). While there he placed economic growth and its relationship with inequalities at the centre of the World Bank’s research agenda. Before that period in Washington DC he was Professor of Economics at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris. He also founded and directed the Département et laboratoire d’Economie Théorique et Appliquée (DELTA), a research unit in theoretical and applied economics.

The Joseph Fisher Lecture is organised by the University’s School of Economics and has been presented at the University almost every other year since 1904. Funds for the lectures and a medal for the top commerce student were provided by an endowment to the University in 1903 by prominent Adelaide businessman Joseph Fisher.

This year’s Fisher Lecture visit to Australia is co-sponsored by the Monash Centre for Development Economics and AusAID. Don’t miss this exciting speaker!
