Justin Lin will speak about the topic of his new book. How can developing countries grow their economies? Most answers to this question center on how the  poor world learns from  the rich world. In “The Quest for Prosperity”, Justin Lin--the first non-Westerner to be chief economist of the World Bank--focuses on what developing nations can do well based on what they have.
