In the 2015 Kurt Viermetz Lecture on May 28, economist Lawrence H. Summers drew on a recent international report he co-chaired on inclusive prosperity to discuss the ways in which the global economy has changed over the last generation and how policies need to respond. Summers will discuss the respective advantages and disadvantages of American and European economic policy approaches. He will conclude that strong policy actions are essential to raise growth rates and to combat inequality. The presentation was moderated by Christine I. Wallich, a former director at the World Bank.
