by Oded Galor (Brown University)

The CICSE (Centro Interuniversitario Crescita & Sviluppo Economico, announces that the second “CICSE Lectures on Growth and Development”, in collaboration with the Department of Economics, University “Parthenope” of Naples, will be delivered by Prof. Oded Galor, Herbert H. Goldberger Professor of Economics, Brown University, Providence, RI, USA

The CICSE Lectures are planned to provide invited scholars with the opportunity to recollect and reorganize their ideas, to present them in a more general format, to provide proofs of special cases or some empirical studies that in short presentations like that of an article of a journal cannot be exhaustively treated, and to provide deeper analyses of some points. Once delivered a set of Lectures are collected in a book published by Cambridge University Press in the “CICSE Lectures on Growth and Development” Series. The first set of Lectures were delivered by Stephen J. Turnovsky on "Capital Accumulation and Economic Growth in a Small Open Economy" and the book is currently in press.

The three Lectures by Professor Galor are on " Inequality and the Process of Development". More precisely they are on

Lecture 1 (June 8, afternoon):     From the Classical and Neoclassical Approach to The Modern Perspective
Lecture 2 (June 9, morning):       A Unified Approach
Lecture 3(June 10, morning):      Inequality and Growth Promoting Human Capital Policies
