Esther Duflo in conversation with Alexandra Haas (Spanish version)

Querétaro 2021, 

The French economist and MIT academic Esther Duflo was an advisor to Barack Obama and in 2010 received the John Bates Clark Medal for the most outstanding economist in the USA aged under 40. Foreign Policy magazine has named her as one of the world’s 100 most influential thinkers and her books have been translated into over 15 languages. In 2019 she was one of the three recipients of the Nobel Prize for Economics, together with Abhijit Banerjee, with whom she wrote the recent book, Good Economics for Hard Times (2020); this work shows how economic theory, if used appropriately, can be useful when it comes to solving some of the most severe socio-political problems of our times: from migration to inequality, sluggish economic growth and runaway climate change. She will talk to the Executive Director of Oxfam Mexico, Alexandra Haas.
