On his website, John McArthur states that he is an optimist and an economist focused on improving living standards around the world. At first glance, this might not sound odd, but considering the enormous and complex obstacles facing such a goal, and considering that McArthur is among a select group of experts who actually understand the enormity of the challenges, optimism isn’t the obvious state of being.
The senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and international authority on global sustainable development will deliver a presentation on “The Sustainable Development Goals: Toward Better Living Standards for Everyone.”
McArthur’s presentation is part of the annual student-sponsored Global Health Week, an initiative of the Global Health Student Advisory Committee. Additional partners include The Global Health Visiting Speaker Series and the Brown School Global Poverty Theme.
