The First Latin American Advanced Programme on Rethinking Macro and Development Economics
Hosted by São Paulo School of Economics FGV/SP. Sao Paulo – Brazil
12 January – 16 January, 2009
The São Paulo School of Economics, with support from FAPESP and Ordem dos Economistas do Brasil, is hosting the first advanced summer programme on rethinking macro and development economics to be held in Latin America, from January 12-16, 2009. The programme builds on the successful experience of the Cambridge Advance Programme on Rethinking Development Economics (CAPORDE), which has taken place during each of the last eight years in Cambridge,UK. The programme will admit a select group of 25 or so young academics from developing countries with a focus in Latin America, providing them with lectures, discussions, and research workshops with leading scholars on cutting edge topics in macro and development economics from a number of critical perspectives. There will be no tuition fees for the course. A limited number of scholarships will be available for some of the applicants to finance travel, accommodation and subsistence. The scholarships will be granted based on CVs. The programme is mainly intended for young academics. Confirmed lecturers include Gabriel Palma (Cambridge University), Ha-Joon Chang (Cambridge University), Jomo, K.S. (Assistant-Secretary General, UN), Jose Antonio Ocampo (Columbia University), Jan Kregel (Univ. of Missouri), Yoshiaki Nakano (São Paulo School of Economics) and Luiz Carlos Bresser-Pereira (São Paulo School of Economics).
