About the 2nd InsTED Workshop
Over the next 20 years, there will be an unprecedented change in the global distribution of growth and trade patterns: as much as two-thirds of global growth could emanate from the developing world, with roughly equal distributions of global export shares. Accompanying this shift, economic leadership will move toward the developing world. Meanwhile, there is growing recognition that the existing institutions governing trade policy and economic development are no longer adequate, and that their evolution will play a critical role in shaping the efficiency and equity of economic outcomes. A better understanding of how such anticipated institutional changes interact with economic policy is crucial for business planning and forward-looking policymaking in developed and developing countries alike.
The Institutions, Trade, and Economic Development Network (InsTED) was established in 2012 by a group of like-minded academics working at the intersection of political-economic institutions, international trade, and economic development to explore these issues. The 2nd InsTED Workshop will be held at the University of Oregon, August 12– 14, 2014 and will bring together economists from all over the world to present and discuss their latest research.
