Arianto Patunru and Zakir Machmud – Poverty and Globalization in Indonesia

Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by Green College.  The costs and benefits of globalization have long been a major debate in the literature of development economics. Arianto Patunru and Zakir Machmud argue that it is important to understand the link between globalization and poverty for the case of developing countries like Indonesia whose key objective is to fight poverty. They will discuss such nexus with specific emphases on the role of small and medium enterprises, as well as supporting infrastructure (e.g. logistics and value chain). This lecture is part of the ongoing Green College Thematic Series: “Public Health Law and Policy in Asia.”
