Professor Theodore Christov (George Washington University) will serve as discussion leader in order to facilitate an in-depth exploration of the questions and challenges raised by a set of readings on the topic, in particular by Alexis de Tocqueville.
On April 14, 2018, the Program in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics will co-organize a day-long discussion colloquium for selected undergraduate students on the topic “The Economics of Foreign Aid.” The colloquium will explore the questions and challenges raised by a set of readings on the topic of foreign aid that will be provided in advance. The reading list entails work by Nobel Prize Winner Amartya Sen who will be on campus for the PPE Distinguished Public Lecture in the week after the discussion colloquium.
