Abstract

Why are some countries rich and others poor? The lecture explores the interplay of geography, globalization, technological change, economic policy, and institutions, to show how they have determined the wealth and poverty of nations around the world. Using historical examples to analyse the factors that have influenced growth, the lecture exposes what has caused the unequal world we live in today.
