Economic Institutions and Why They Matter (1)
Why are some nations poor while others are prosperous? What are “economic institutions,” and how do they shape the standard of living and the opportunities available in different countries? Could economic institutions be the key to a nation’s success? How do such institutions relate to income per capita, economic growth, poverty, life expectancy, political rights and civil liberties, gender inequality, and even happiness?
In this webinar, Signè Thomas from the Gus A. Stavros Center for the Advancement of Free Enterprise and Economic Education at Florida State University will delve into what makes for sound economic institutions and how they impact the well-being of people around the globe.
This webinar is delivered at no cost to you, and attendees that complete both the pre- and post-webinar feedback forms will receive free bonus content and a certificate of completion.
