Join Public Policy and Economics Professor William Easterly for a special lecture on international aid. The fight against global poverty is connected to the contentious issue of migration from poor to rich countries. The connection of the war on poverty to the war on terror perpetrates a stereotype of poor people as violent, unintentionally fueling xenophobia and restrictions on migration. The good news is that economic ideas are the best antidote to xenophobia, opening the door again to migration as a powerful vehicle itself for global poverty reduction.
