View Lant Pritchett’s, Research Director at Research on Improving Systems of Education (RISE), presentation on reducing global poverty. Countering the intuitive notion that poverty reduction is about finding and implementing effective programmes for the poor, his slides show how broad-based increases in economic productivity that create prosperity are in fact the only route to the elimination of poverty, arguing that anything else is just poor economics.

Before becoming the RISE Research Director at the Blavatnik School, University of Oxford, Lant was a Senior Fellow at the Center for Global Development and Professor of the Practice of International Development at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
