‘We Need a New Vision in Development’
World Bank chief economist Pinelopi Goldberg says equality can’t be an afterthought in plans for economic growth.
Pinelopi Koujianou Goldberg, a Yale University economist known for her work on the relationship between international trade and inequality, has been a leading voice for enlarging the concept of economic growth so it includes those left behind by globalization and technological change. Goldberg, the first female editor in chief of the prestigious American Economic Review, became chief economist of the World Bank at the end of November 2018. She recently shared her thoughts on new economic thinking with Foreign Policy.
