Laporde – The Fourth Latin American Advanced Programme on Rethinking Macro and Development Economics

The School wants to perform an advanced program for rethinking macroeconomics and the theory of economic development. The program is based on the successful experience of the advanced program of Cambridge-Rethinking Macroeconomics and the Theory of Development (Laporde) which was held in Cambridge, United Kingdom, for eight years. The program will select a group of about 100 university students in developing countries with focus on Latin America and other developing economies, and this program will consist of lectures, debates, workshops and research with leading scholars on the theme. After being taught in Cambridge for eight years, the course has been offered at Fundação Getúlio Vargas, free of charge to participants. The students will have the opportunity to participate in the frontier research carried out from critical perspectives on key issues in economic development and macroeconomics. The teaching will be carried out through lectures and discussions provided for by some of the high-profile world scholars on the subject. Given the level of teachers, this is a unique course on macroeconomic theories and unconventional economic development.
