Abstract:
Excerpt from the lecture: "I am both honoured and pleased by the invitation to give the Raul Prebisch Lecture today. The honour comes from recalling an exceptional man. Prebisch was an eminent scholar and a prominent actor on the policy stage, a preeminent figure who carried his great stature with charm, grace and wit. The honour is the greater because of where I give the Lecture. The emergence of the new South Africa under Prime Minister Mandela, wedded to the rule of law and a commitment to producing racial and ethnic harmony in a world pulling in more dissonant and destructive directions, has been a ray of hope for all of mankind."
