Announced: Sir Partha Dasgupta
Posted on the 14th January 2013 by Tom
We're happy to say that another distinguished academic and a second Knight of the Realm, Sir Partha Dasgupta, has confirmed that he will speak at WES 2013.
Once President of the Royal Economic Society, Dasgupta is a distinguished development and welfare economist from a family of academics.
Currently a Professor of Economics at the University of Cambridge and Research Fellow at the University of Manchester, his illustrious career has also included positions at the London School of Economics and Stanford University.
Hailing from Bangladesh, he is the second speaker from outside of the UK to join February's event, but certainly not the last.
