Dr Chiara Ravetti joins a panel of experts to discuss the 'Resource Curse' on TRT World Television

Wednesday, 10 January 2018

OxCarre Research Fellow, Dr. Chiara Ravetti, recently took part in a TRT World Television roundtable discussion addressing the topic 'Are Natural Resources a Blessing or a Curse?'.

Chiara discussed with the other two guests, Prof. Guy Michaels from the London School of Economics and Prof. Leif Wenar from Kings' College, why some countries struggle to transform their natural resource wealth into sustainable growth outcomes. Specifically, the debate revolved around the concept of Dutch disease, the political economy of natural resource exploitation and examples of successful country cases.

The Roundtable show, broadcast out of the London studio in Oxford Circus and presented by David Foster, is a discussion programme on current affairs targeted at the general public.
