Modern economies produce a dizzying variety of goods and services in production processes that coordinate the efforts of countless economic actors in networks that span around the globe. How does this process work and how can we analyze it to predict and accelerate future growth and development?
To answer this question, Ricardo Hausmann will introduce the framework of Economic Complexity Analysis. This framework not only changes how we view the roles of human capital, migration and foreign direct investment in economic growth, but also helps predict the development trajectories of cities, regions and countries.
Moreover, it offers new answers to old puzzles in economic development: Why did the world experience such rapid economic growth over the past centuries? Why did this growth lead to a massive expansion in inequality in the 18th, 19th, and 20th century? Why has this inequality started narrowing at the end of the 20th century? And what can we do to support a more inclusive and sustainable growth in the 21st century?
