Description

This seminar examines the conditions under which governments enacted far-reaching reforms such as privatization, private property rights, financial market liberalization, and free trade over the last quarter century. It compares the outcome of these measures in selected cities, particular countries, and specific sectors in East and Central Europe, Latin America, Asia, and Africa. The seminar will explore innovative, private-sector driven approaches in relief and development; the growth of the real estate sector; and the spread of financial instruments more commonly associated with developed countries. In addition, it will assess public-private partnerships such as the one between the coffee transnational, Starbucks and several international non-governmental organizations to provide water, sanitation and micro-credit in developing countries. Finally the course will consider the impact of market growth on the poor.
