Sanjaya Lall

Professor of Development Economics

University of Oxford, Department of Economics

We at Global Policy Innovations are saddened by the loss of Oxford University development economist Sanjaya Lall. Professor Lall was a key contributor to the conversation at our Help Wanted event. In the words of colleague Larry Westphal (Swarthmore College, Department of Economics), "Lall became the pre-eminent advocate of a holistic approach to industrial development. He recommended a coherent strategy aimed at bringing the public and private sectors together to exploit the advantages of globalisation" (Financial Times, Obituary, June 29, 2005). His iconoclastic thinking will be missed.
