The “Growth and Development” conference will contribute to understanding the reasons for the large and sustained cross-country differences in income per capita.  We are particularly interested in the roles that differences in economic policies play in this context.  The conference organizers are Berthold Herrendorf, Associate Professor in the Department of Economics, W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, and Gustavo Ventura, Associate Professor of Economics, University of Iowa.  The conference participants are established and young researchers who are working at the intersection of Economic Growth and Development.

The conference will take place in the Garden Room at The Upham Hotel & Country House.
