The Unicamp Institute of Economics invites you for the lecture "From fiscal stabilization to economic diversification: a developmental approach to managing resource revenues", which will be given by Dr. Amir Lebdioui (London School of Economics). The event is organized by the Center for the Study of International Economic Relations (Ceri) and the Center for Industrial Economics and Technology (Neit).

The management of revenues from exhaustible natural resources involves a number of challenges. In order to rethink this issue among resource-rich and commodity-dependent countries, a developmental perspective is adopted, suggesting an alternative resource revenue management model based on gradual scale-up of investments in productivity-enhancing assets, which would enable the alignment of both short-term stabilization and long-term diversification.

These ideas will be explored in the webinar and are detailed in the paper coauthored with Professor Ha-Joon Chang (University of Cambridge).
