World Bank Chief Economist Justin Lin's Marshall Lecture

A lot of readers seem to be interested in the research work of incoming World Bank Chief Economist Justin Lin. Here is latest one, a draft paper prepared for Marshall lecture delivered late last year.

BTW, simply gauging from the choice of economists to lead World Bank's and IMF's research (Simon Johnson) effort, it seems economists whose research efforts focus on the primary role of institutions as a driver of economic growth have been well accepted by the profession, at least by the bosses of the international financial institutions any way.
