STICERD 25th Anniversary Lecture

Date: Tuesday 4 May 2004
Time: 6.00pm
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
: Nicholas Stern FBA
Chair: Professor Timothy Besley

The promotion of growth which provides rising living standards for all sections of society requires an active state whose role should include fostering a favourable climate for economic and investment activity and empowering and investing in people so that they are included. The development of institutions is central to this. The relations of inclusion and empowerment to public policy will be examined and in particular the challenge of analysing and formulating public policy in the context of changing preferences.
