Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz Debuts Babacar Ndiaye Lecture

Africa must pursue a "learning-led" development strategy, Professor Joseph Stiglitz said in the inaugural Babacar Ndiaye in Washington, DC on October 15. The lecture series was launched by the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) to honor the former president of the African Development Bank (AfDB). Stiglitz outlined policies he says Africa needs to adopt to achieve inclusive economic growth and provide jobs for a population that is the fastest rising in the world.
