"An economic crisis in a developing country is very different from a crisis in a rich economy."
Stefan Dercon is Professor of Economic Policy at Oxford University and Director of the Centre for the Study of African Economies. His ground-breaking research focusses on what keeps people and countries poor: the failures of markets, governments and politics, mainly in Africa, and how to achieve change. He was previously Chief Economist of the UK's Department of International Development.
