India, Brazil and South Africa: the Democratic Alternative

Wednesday 14 May 2014, 6.30pm, B13, Lincoln's Inn Field
Speakers: Ann Bernstein, Dr Eswaran Sridharan and Dr Simon Schwartzman; Chair: Anne Applebaum

Since 2008, the appeal of Western democratic capitalism has faded. Many in the developing world now look to China as a model for rapid growth.  However, there are lessons to be learned from the large and diverse democratic market economies beyond the Western world. Based on a research study of India, Brazil and South Africa, the panel will challenge the increasing belief that democracy is a hindrance to growth.
