NYU's Stern School of Business and NCAER co-host workshop at NYU Law

On October 7-8 NYU’s Stern School of Business and India’s National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER) co-hosted “Restoring Inclusive Growth in Advanced Economies: A Conversation with Economists and Policy Makers from G20 Countries” at the NYU School of Law.

Nobel Prize-winning economist Michael Spence, who recently joined the Stern faculty, helped kick off the two-day workshop along with Peter Henry, Stern’s dean, and Suman Bery, director general of the NCAER. Spence also chaired two panels, one on restoring inclusive growth in advanced economies and another providing a conclusion to the two-day event.

"It was an impressively high-powered gathering," said Kevin Davis, Beller Family Professor of Business Law. "The presentations I saw were tremendously topical, informative, and engaging."

Among the more than three dozen panelists, presenters, and discussants were Sri Mulyani Indrawati, managing director of the World Bank, who appeared via videoconferencing; Kaushik Basu, chief economic adviser to India’s Ministry of Finance; and Robert Rubin, chairman of the Council for Foreign Relations and former secretary of the U.S. Treasury. Discussions focused on topics such as growth in developing countries, and policies and strategies for long-term growth in the U.S., E.U., and Japan.
