Changes in global income distribution and their political consequences

March 13
1:30 p.m.
Bradley Reading Room, Strozier Library

The college's Broad International Lecture Series, in conjunction with the Florida State University Libraries, presents a talk by alumnus Branko Milanovic, Ph.D. (M.S. ’80 Economics), this year’s winner of the FSU Libraries Alumni Award for Distinguished Writing.

Milanovic, who received his Ph.D. in economics and statistics from the University of Belgrade, was nominated by Manoj Atolia, chair of the Department of Economics and the Bernard F. Sliger Professor of Economics.

He is a leading scholar on income inequality. In 2014, he joined the Graduate Center of the City University of New York as Visiting Presidential Professor and LIS (formerly Luxembourg Income Study) Senior Scholar. Prior to that, he was lead economist in the World Bank's research department.

He is author of “The Haves and the Have-Nots: A Brief and Idiosyncratic History of Global Inequality” and numerous articles on global income distribution. His most recent book is “Global Inequality: A New Approach for the Age of Globalization” (Harvard University Press 2016).

Milanovic’s lecture will focus on this key issue in his research and writing.

The annual Florida State University Alumni Award for Distinguished Writing recognizes a living and renowned FSU graduate for a distinguished and influential body of published work. This work can be academic, non-fiction, fiction or a combination.
