ECON Grads at the 6th Lindau meeting on Economic Sciences

Thursday, August 24, 2017

Graduate student Devaki Ghose was selected among young economists through a combination of written application and interviews to be a panelist alongside Eric Maskin (Nobel Laureate, Economics) and Howard Yana Shapiro (Chief Agricultural Scientist, Mars Incorporated) to discuss economic inequality in a globalized world on August 24th.

 

The panelists first discussed their views on economic inequality, solutions and then the forum was open to questions from the audience. The following articles cover the event-
