Topic 2017: Why nations fail?

Why are some nations rich and others poor, divided by wealth and poverty, health and sickness, food and famine?  Is it culture, the weather, geography? Perhaps ignorance of what the right policies are?  How to explain why Botswana has become one of the fastest growing countries in the world, while other African nations, such as Zimbabwe, the Congo, and Sierra Leone, are mired in poverty and violence?  Are we moving from a virtuous circle in which efforts by elites to aggrandize power are resisted to a vicious one that enriches and empowers a small minority?  What is the most effective way to help move billions of people from the rut of poverty to prosperity? More philanthropy from the wealthy nations of the West?

Meet our speakers

Meet leading thinkers, scientists, businessmen and policymakers from around the world.

James Robinson—the co-author of the hard-hi$ing book, Why Nations Fail—knows why some countries are richer, healthier, and more prosperous than others. In his keynotes, Robinson delves into real-world examples that contrast success and failure among various na- tions. To thrive economically, a nation needs a strong government, clear incentives for invest- ment, powerful institutions and sound infra- structure.
