Rethinking Bretton Woods | Fri, Feb 7, 2014
Increasingly, production in the global economy is organized in cross-border large and complex networks of suppliers and services, called global production networks, also known as supply or value chains. What are the implications of this mode of production for development prospects of developing countries? What are the impacts on their capacity to develop industrial sectors and raise the standards of living of their population? How do they affect trade and growth dynamics?
On February 5-6, 2014, a seminar convened by Center of Concern and the Brazil-based Institute for Applied Economic Research (IPEA) in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, convened policymakers, academics and other experts to address these questions. Team member Aldo Caliari attended on behalf of the Center of Concern.
