Wealth Redistribution, Innovations, and Sustainability
December 2, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
This event is part of the Thursday Morning Lecture Series on Our Changing Economic Landscape.
We will consider how migration is transforming societies around the globe. Are receiving countries better or worse off when they welcome new immigrants? How can migrant-receiving societies do a better job welcoming immigrants? How do sending countries fare when their citizens leave? How can sending countries best harness international migration opportunities for development back home? Overall, is a world with international migration better off than a world without it?
Our speaker, Dean Yang is Professor of Economics and Public Policy at the University of Michigan. His research agenda spans international migration, microfinance, health, disasters, and political economy. His fieldwork locations include El Salvador, Guatemala, Indonesia, Malawi, Mozambique, and the Philippines, as well as migrant populations worldwide.
He teaches courses in development economics at the Ph.D., master, and undergraduate levels. A native of the Philippines, he received his undergraduate and Ph.D. degrees in economics from Harvard University.
