Shaken But Not Dead

March 24, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

beyond-apologies-ecnomics-wellbeing-debra-efroymson

Please join IPS and the International Labor Rights Forum for a roundtable discussion with Debra Efroymson, author of Beyond Apologies; Defining and Achieving an Economics of Wellbeing, on the flawed assumptions in development programming today. Debra will share some of her observations from the ground in Bangladesh, Vietnam and Sri Lanka. Colleagues from around Washington will reflect on how development programming has shifted as we look at the work of the World Bank, other multilateral institutions, and the trade and development policies of the United States.

Watch a trailer for Beyond Apologies here.

“Economics does not have to be the dismal science. Many false assumptions have crept into economics over the years. Debra Efroymson clears the air and shows us how to build a prosperous and sustainable economy.” – J.H. Crawford, author of  Carfree Cities (International Books, 2002) and  Carfree Design Manual (International Books, 2009)
