Paul Romer, Economist
New Books Network 2020
Paul Romer has devoted his professional life to understand better and measure how human ingenuity is a major force in economic development. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2018, was Chief Economist of the World Bank (2016-18), and conducts research at NYU now. The economist extraordinaire is equipped with a roving intellect matched by mathematical acuity that he wields to marshal data and wisdom to extoll endogenous factors as the truly human engines of growth for a better world.
