Oct. 7, Paul Collier
Paul Collier is coming to lecture about 'Africa's urban future: nightmare or opportunity?' on the 7th October. Pleasance theatre. Wine reception at 7pm. Lecture at 7:30pm. Free.
Paul Collier is a renowned economist from the University of Oxford, and has written books such as 'The Bottom Billion', 'Exodus' and 'Wars, Guns and Votes'. Here are a few descriptions of him:
"Paul Collier is one of the world's most thoughtful economists. His books consistently illuminate and provoke. Exodus is no exception." --The Economist.
"This is an arresting, provocative book. If you care about the fate of the poorest people in the world, and want to understand what can be done to help them, read it. If you don't care, read it anyway." - Tim Harford, Financial Times columnist and author of The Undercover Economist
