This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Does globalization really destroy local economic development and worsen working conditions for the poor? Indonesia’s experience shows that, contrary to what some may have imagined, the poor can greatly benefit from trade liberalization.
As an applied economist and researcher, Krisztina is passionate about understanding the effects of public policies by employing rigorous statistical evidence, and teaching students to do the same.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
