NY Times Profiles Dani Rodrik’s Work on Globalization Dani Rodrik

February 1, 2007

The impact of globalization and free trade upon social justice, particularlyin the developing world, is eliciting increased scrutiny by politicians, social advocates, and academics. Dani Rodrik, Rafiq Hariri Professor of International Political Economy and director of the Center for International Development’s Political Economy Program, examines these impacts in a Jan. 30 article in The New York Times.

“The people who talk incessantly about trade and its importance,” Mr. Rodrik told the Times, “do so without recognizing the importance of the social insurance agenda as part and parcel of that process.”

Rodrik has been widely published in the areas of international economics, economic development, and political economy. He teaches courses on economic development and international trade at the Kennedy School.
