"Can the World Keep Progressing?"
Civil service economist Mr Paddy Pollard shares his views with our Sixth Form Economics students.
We were delighted to welcome Mr Paddy Pollard, OK07, back to Kimbolton yesterday (05 Oct) to give a Sixth Form Economics talk on "Can the world keep progressing?". Mr Pollard works as a civil service economist in the Department for International Development, and is tasked with advising on how aid should be spent in unstable regions.
Our students heard how, despite many challenges which hinder growth, the world has seen remarkable progress in reducing absolute poverty and raising living standards - and how economists have helped allocate funding to gain the best possible return.
