Join us in discussion of Steven Radelet's new book, The Great Surge: The Ascent of the Developing World.
The book documents the extraordinary progress in developing countries over the past two decades in income, poverty, health, education, democracy, conflict, and beyond; explains why the surge of progress began in the early 1990s; and explores the potential for continued progress into the future. George Scharffenberger will join Steven in conversation on the book and its context.
Books will be available for purchase and refreshments will be provided.
