2019 Jobs and Development Conference
Distinguished economists Daron Acemoglu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and Ricardo Hausmann (Harvard University) provided the keynote addresses at the conference. They made the case for paradigm shifts in how we think about economic growth, jobs, productivity, wages, and the future of work – both in developed and developing countries.
The messages from the keynote speakers resonated with the findings of the World Bank Jobs Group study, Pathways to Better Jobs in IDA Countries, which was also showcased at the Jobs and Development Conference.
The conference featured these two keynote speakers:
JUNE 6, 2 PM
Daron Acemoglu (MIT): “Productivity, Work and Wages: Lessons for Developed and Developing Economies”
JUNE 7, 11 AM
Ricardo Hausmann (Harvard University): “Growth Diagnostics and Jobs”
