Call for Papers - Joint Workshop on Covid-19, Dutch Disease, Natural Resources Curse, and New Developmentalism


The 5th edition of the Workshop on New Developmentalism will be held on July 30 and 31st and it will be hosted by the Getulio Vargas Foundation’s Center for Studies on New Developmentalism. It includes a mini-course on new developmentalism, in which this theory will be compared with classical developmentalism, as well as post-Keynesian macroeconomics - the two schools of thought from which new developmentalism originates, and plenary sessions for discussions about submitted and selected papers. Currently, it is expected to be a face-to-face workshop, but it may be carried out as a web workshop according to the evolution of Covid-19 and the social distance rules. The event will be preceded by a web seminar “Three plagues: Covid-19, Dutch disease and natural resources curse” (with Jeffrey Sachs and Joseph Stiglitz as keynote speakers) on July 29th, for more information on both events, check:
