ECOINT talks with International Economic Thinkers:
Carmen M. Reinhart
Senior Vice President and Chief Economist of the World Bank Group, Minos A. Zombanakis Professor of the International Financial System at Harvard Kennedy School
This interview is the first of a series of interviews with international economic thinkers who work at intergovernmental organisations which we have conducted with the aim to illuminate the range of ideas that have fashioned economic thinking and policy in the 20th Century. What are the unique trajectories of these influential thinkers in the interstitial space of international forums? How have their economic ideas, doubts, and dreams evolved and turned into actionable programs on a planetary scale? How are ideas about the world economy produced in Intergovernmental Organisations? Who are the visible and invisible actors and what are the visible and invisible processes, institutions and practices?
