Building on its latest publication, ‘Wealth of Nations: What Drives High Growth Rates?’ the World Bank-funded Commission on Growth and Development will hold workshops in New York on ‘Growth and Some of its Micro and Macro Foundations’ (April 9) and ‘The Role of Leadership and Governance in Shaping and Implementing Growth Strategies’ (April 10). These will be followed by a Washington workshop focusing on some of the commission’s 25 country case studies: “The studies will help illustrate, validate, and/or challenge, the conclusions reached in the Commission’s thematic papers.” Which countries are to be discussed, however, is yet to be announced.
