The Luca d’Agliano Lectures

 

The Luca d’Agliano lectures, which are organised every year with the generous support of the Compagnia di San Paolo of Turin, are aimed at favouring the diffusion of the ideas of some of the most important scholars in the field to a non specialised audience. As the general debate on development is often confused and muddled the final aim of the lectures is to ground it in sound economic analysis.
