Dani Rodrik will explore the globalisation backlash and the ways (hyper-) globalisation has produced a political counter-reaction. He will present an alternative model of globalisation that is more compatible with economic prosperity and social inclusion.

Dani Rodrik (@rodrikdani) is the Ford Foundation Professor of International Political Economy at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government. He is currently President-Elect of the International Economic Association, and co-director of Economics for Inclusive Prosperity. His newest book is Straight Talk on Trade: Ideas for a Sane World Economy.
