A new policy paradigm for resource-rich developing countries: could an export boom be contractionary?



Dr Martin Davies, Associate Professor of Economics, Washington and Lee University; Centre Associate, Development Policy Centre, ANU.


Brindabella Theatre, JG Crawford Building (132), Lennox Crossing, ANU


Wednesday, 6 December, 2017 - 12:30 to 13:30

Resource-rich developing countries are different. They obviously have large resource sectors, but these typically operate as enclaves, and most profits are repatriated, so net factor income is typically large and negative. In this seminar, Martin Davies will present the findings of a paper co-authored with Marcel Schröder, which presents a simple model of internal and external balance that incorporates the key features of this class of countries.
