Reflections on Progress

by Mike Hunter

Reflections-on-ProgressThis is a thought-provoking series of essays written for Project Syndicate from 2011 to 2015. The essays are organized into three sections: global economic interdependence, inequality and the political economy of reform, and the specific challenge of Europe. The common theme is the need for growth-oriented and socially inclusive policymaking in an interdependent world. These kinds of policies offer the potential for another wave of unprecedented human progress aided by breathtaking new technologies. However, a huge and destabilizing disruption is possible if policymaking is not globally cooperative and is not focused on inclusion and greater equity.
