19th HW Arndt Lecture by Professor Douglas Irwin

In this talk, Professor Douglas Irwin from Dartmouth College discussed how the world is in a new phase of globalisation with the demise of policy liberalisation and the rise of economic nationalism, industrial policy, and geopolitical tensions. He asked “What can we learn from past waves of globalisation to help guide us in this new era?” He also discussed the current period of ‘slowbalisation’ and potential economic fragmentation.

The HW Arndt Lecture series honour Professor Heinz Arndt’s long and distinguished career in development economics and Asia-Pacific regional studies, as well as his contributions to the University.
