Poland's economic progress and the BRICs
The lecture is based on professor Winiecki's forthcoming book: "Economic Development Patterns and the BRIC Group of Countries: Theory, History and Future Prospects".
Professor Tomasz Mroczkowski of American University will introduce the speaker, provide comments and lead the discussion.
The event is made possible thanks to the Earhart Foundation and the Polish Heritage Foundation.
Professor Jan Winiecki began his studies in the Department of Foreign Trade of the Central School of Planning and Statistics (present day Warsaw School of Economics), holds a Ph.D. from the University of Warsaw Faculty of Law and Administration and holds a postdoctoral degree in international political economy. Professor Winiecki has served as the Head of the Economic and Policy Unity at the Centre for Scientific, Technical and Economic Information (1971-1973), and has been a researcher in various agencies as well as an economic adviser from 1985-1989 for a group of economic advisers for Solidarity named Konwersatorium. He was a board member of the EBRD and advised several Polish governments on economic policy.He currently serves as a professor at the University Information Technology and Management in Rzeszow.
BRICs is an acronym that refers to the countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China; which have all been designated to be in a similar stage of newly advanced economic development. The term was originally coined by a Goldman Sachs report from 2003 which highlighted the possibility that by 2050 these four economies would be wealthier than most of the current major economic powers.
