Dani Rodrik, one of the most influential voices on globalization and economic development, will join Tyler Cowen for a wide-ranging intellectual dialogue as part of the Conversations with Tyler series.

Rodrik is one of the deepest and most important thinkers on globalization, economic growth and development, and political economy.  He is especially known for his work emphasizing the problems that emerge as countries and cultures are more deeply integrated into the global economy. His 1997 book Has Globalization Gone Too Far? was called “one of the most important economics books of the decade” in Business Week. Professor Rodrik returned to the Kennedy School in July 2015 after two years at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton as the Albert O. Hirschman professor. Prior to joining the Institute for Advanced Study in 2013, he held professorships at Harvard and Columbia. His most recent book, The Globalization Paradox, has been translated into twelve languages.
