Chatham House, London

International Economics Department

Participants

Professor Dani Rodrik, Harvard University
Chair: Professor Sharun Mukand, University of Warwick

Overview

This seminar marks the launch of Professor Dani Rodrik's new book The Globalisation Paradox: Democracy and the Future of the World Economy and is part of the Chatham House - CAGE partnership supported by the ESRC.

In his book Professor Rodrik argues that democracy, national self-determination, and economic globalisation cannot be simultaneously pursued. Too much power to governments leads to protectionism; too much freedom to markets leads to an unstable world economy with little social and political support from those it is supposed to help. Professor Rodrik will argue for smart globalisation, not maximum globalisation.

Attendance is by invitation only.
