This one-week Internet course is targeted specifically at trade practitioners in small or medium South Asian countries (Afghanistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri-Lanka, Pakistan, and Maldives). Its goal is to provide useful insights and better understanding of trade facilitation, transit, and logistics constraints preventing optimal export diversification in those countries.
Economic studies and theories on discounting and uncertainty hope to determine the relative costs and benefits of climate change in the future. Nobel laureate Kenneth Arrow shared his views on discounting for projects that have payoffs in the deep and uncertain future, at a presentation at the World Bank last week.
As usual on Fridays, from Raj Nallari and Breda Griffith's lecture notes.
