Puerto Rico at a Crossroads and Lessons from Latin America

Puerto Rico at a  Crossroads and Lessons from Latin America

On April 7, 2023, the Center for a New Economy, in partnership with the Yale Economic Growth Center, the Tobin Center for Economic Policy at Yale University, and the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration, hosted a conversation on Puerto Rico’s development opportunities and challenges.

Jumpstarting the Puerto Rican economy and charting a sustainable path forward will require that a combination of effective programs, policies, and investments be devised and deployed. This conference brought together scholars interested in discussing where lessons from theory and practice are drawn, successful examples from the island and the rest of the world can be discussed, and opportunities for implementation can be considered.

The event featured:

  • Joseph E. Stiglitz – Nobel Laureate in Economics and Professor of Economics at Columbia University
  • Mart√≠n Guzm√°n – Co-President of the Initiative for Policy Dialogue, Columbia University
  • Orazio Attanasio – EGC Affiliate and Cowles Professor of Economics, Yale University
