"Hope is Capability"

Please join us on Tuesday, April 16, 2013, at 5:30 p.m., for "Hope is Capability," a talk by Esther Duflo, in Sharpless Auditorium.

The concept of the poverty trap has played a central role in the economics of poverty and development. The theme of this lecture is whether a deficit of hope can be the source of a poverty trap, and, conversely, whether hope can fuel an exit from the poverty trap.

Please join us for this event, sponsored by the Economics Department and supported through the William Comanor '59 lecture series.

The Climbing Stone, by Peter Rockwell '58, is located outside Magill Library.
