The 3Ms of development in the 21st century: messy, misunderstood, miserable
08 March 2021, 12:00 pm–1:30 pm
Join us to hear Jesus Felipe talk about his working experience and research on the 3Ms of development in the 21st century: messy, misunderstood, miserable. This talk will be chaired by IIPP’s Antonio Andreoni with a discussion from Lant Pritchett, RISE Research Director at the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford. Followed by questions from the audience.
This event is free.
The presentation will provide a discussion of how Jesus Felipe sees development proceeding and being understood in the 21st century. The analysis is based on his long experience living and working in Asia (over 20 years at the Asian Development Bank) and on his research on growth, structural transformation, productivity, industrialisation, industrial policy, and employment. He summarises his views in what he refers to as the “3Ms of development: messy, misunderstood, miserable.” These ideas are background material for a book.
The value added to the presentation will be the insights that he can provide on development as a field practitioner. He has first-hand experience of living for a long time in the Phillippines as well as having travelled and worked on projects in Indonesia, Greater Mekong Subregion, Uzbekistan, Pakistan and Kazakhstan.
