The Cadario Visiting Lecture in Public Policy
To fix globalization, we need to understand where we took a wrong turn. In this lecture, Professor Dani Rodrik will explore the shift to what he calls “hyperglobalization” that took place during the 1990s and why it was based on a faulty understanding of how markets work. He will then outline an alternative perspective for a policy agenda that is more consistent with inclusive prosperity at home while preserving multilateralism abroad.

The Cadario Visiting Lecture in Public Policy is possible because of the generous support of Paul Cadario, Distinguished Fellow, Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy.
