Event Description
Speaker: IR Job Candidate, Professor Don Leonard Title: Hard Times in Poor Places: How the politics of adjustment to international economic crises reshape the developing world Under what conditions do international economic crises lead to state development? Earlier studies have shown how the threat of war, both in early modern Europe and Cold War northeast Asia, helped promote the formation of strong political institutions by forcing societies to mobilize for war. Could international trade shocks have a similar effect? This talk explores how the emergence and collapse of early globalization between 1850 and 1929 altered state development across Latin America, generating adaptive pressures that shape the patterns of poverty and prosperity that we observe today.
