Grzegorz W. Kolodko is a professor of political economy and Director of Transformation, Integration and Globalization Economic Research at Kozminski University in Warsaw. Professor Kolodko is considered a key architect of Polish economic reforms. While he served as the Polish Deputy Premier and Minister of Finance (1994-97, 2002-03), he played a leading role in achieving the entry of Poland into the OECD and the European Union. Professor Kolodko is also the author of numerous academic books, research papers and articles.
In this talk, Professor Kolodko will draw on research from his latest book, Truth, Errors, and Lies: Politics and Economics in a Volatile World (Columbia University Press, 2011). The book presents a critical analysis of the neoliberalism that dominated policymaking in the last quarter of the twentieth century. Professor Kolodko will discuss alternative approaches to economic policy, and how they could change the rules of the economic game.
The event is part of the UNU Midday Forum Series, which offers an intimate and informal platform of discussion to the UN permanent missions, the UN Secretariat, UN agencies, academia, NGOs and the private sector to exchange ideas on important topics related to the UN.
