The Crawford School of Public Policy presents an event to discuss the ‘natural resource curse’ and sustainable economic development.
The ‘natural resources curse’ is a common issue in economic development for resource-rich countries and regions. The growth of an energy (resource) dependent economy is often unsustainable because of the volatility of energy (resource) prices, the cyclical employment growth in the energy (resource) sector, and the temporal nature of energy (resource) development.

The event will be conducted by Professor Mark Partridge who holds the C. William Swank Chair of Rural-Urban Policy at The Ohio State University, working in its Department of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics.

Date: Friday 07 December 2018
Time: 11.15am–12.45pm
Venue: Hedley Bull Lecture Theatre 1, Ground Floor, Hedley Bull Centre, Building 130 – ANU
