America As a Developing Country?

Episode 26
July 20, 2020

California Supreme Court Justice & CASBS board chair Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar, Stanford political scientist & former CASBS fellow Barry Weingast, and CASBS director Margaret Levi use a recent article they coauthored as a jumping off point for a discussion on what we can learn from the U.S. in its political-economic development in the first half of the 20th century that applies to the U.S. and its state capacity today and in the future.


Human Centered features conversations about projects and research undertaken by CASBS fellows and other affiliates whose work engages central themes of concern to the Center. The podcast also features audio versions of events from CASBS's awesome online webcast series, Social Science for a World in Crisis.
