Confronting Rising Inequality in Asia
What is the economic outlook for developing Asia and what risks lie ahead?
Will the sovereign debt crisis in Europe and slow growth in the US undermine developing Asia's prospects?
What consequences would Asia face if inequality grows unchecked, and how can developing Asia ensure the gains of economic growth are shared broadly?
Joseph Zveglich, Assistant Chief Economist at the Asian Development Bank, will present the Asian Development Outlook 2012, ADB's flagship economic publication and the most prominent report on economic trends in Asia.
Discussant: Kiichiro Fukasaku, Head of Regional Desks, OECD Development Centre
