A widely published former IMF economist and a corporate and banking executive, he has had responsibilities that include economic development, corporate finance and management, and macroeconomic policy in various countries. He advises governments, international institutions and corporations.
Why are some nations rich and others poor? This is a question that has challenged economists for centuries. A definite answer would satisfy a lot of them—and make poor nations rich. Murat Yulek’s answer to that question is manufacturing and industrial policy. The lecture revolved around many of such issues in details.
