–Please join the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Scot W. Anderson, Energy & Natural Resources Industry Sector, Hogan Lovells, presenting a webinar titled Addressing the Resource Curse on Tuesday, February 9, 2021 from 1:00pm – 2:00pm (MT).
When countries experience a resource boom, they often achieve a rate of economic growth that is lower than the rate of growth achieved by countries that have not experienced a resource boom. Further, countries experiencing a resource boom sometimes see an increase in corruption. This webinar will explore this phenomenon, called the “Resource Curse” or the “Dutch Disease.” In addition to looking at examples of countries that have fallen prey to the resource curse and countries that have avoided the curse, we will review strategies and structures that may avoid or reduce these risks.
