This discussion was held at the Independent Institute in Washington, D.C. Benjamin Powell is a research fellow at the Independent Institute as well as an assistant professor of economics at Suffolk University.
Benjamin Powell talked about the book he edited, Making Poor Nations Rich: Entrepreneurship and the Process of Economic Development, published by Stanford Economics and Finance. He was joined by two of the contributors to the book, Alvaro Vargas Llosa and George Ayittey, to discuss ways for poor countries to grow economically. They argued that growth through entrepreneurship does more to help the poor than redistribution of wealth does. After each participant made his presentation, they responded to questions from members of the audience.
