Diamond and Acemoglu videos

This page in:

Videos and presentations from two recent World Bank events. I missed the first, caught the second.

  • Pulitzer prize-winning author Jared Diamond discusses his most recent book, ‘Collapse.’ The Q&A touched upon the World Bank’s own environmental performance and whether democracies are more capable of handling ‘collapse’ then dictatorships.
  • Bates medal-winner Daron Acemoglu on the factors that determine a society’s success. He gives lots of weight to the power of rule of law and legal codes – and accordingly to the importance of political reform to development.
