Sharing for Prosperity: Lecture and Discussion with Norway’s Minister of International Development Heikki Eidsvoll Holmås.
Despite high levels of growth, poverty reduction has lagged behind in many countries. Income inequality is on the rise globally.
Illicit financial flows leaving developing countries are ten times greater than the aid entering. How can the balance be tilted in favor of the poor? Taxes are needed to fund public expenditures. But if a country like the U.S. has trouble raising taxes from the rich - do developing countries stand a chance?
Join on minister who wants to make a difference, and find out how he plans to do it.
The lecture will be followed by a discussion and reception. Seating is limited. Registration is required.
This event is organized by the Permanent Mission of Norway to the United Nations and the NYU Center on International Cooperation.
