Global Inequality: from the end of World War Two to today

Ralph Miliband Lectures on Inequalities: dimensions and challenges

Date: Tuesday 15 February 2005
Time: 6:30pm
: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker:  Dr Branko Milanovic
Chair:  Professor David Held

This lecture reviews the changes in international inequality (the differences between countries' mean incomes) and inequality between individuals in the world during the last 50 years.  It will focus on the discontinuity in world development which occurred around 1980 with growth accelerations in China and India and the decline of world 'middle class countries' in Latin America and Eastern Europe, and the need to reorient the focus of multilateral agencies to African development.

Dr Branko Milanovic is lead economist at the World Bank and senior associate on a Trade, Equity and Development Project at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.  Entry is on a first come, first serve basis.
