Thursday, May 6, 2021, 2:00pm to 3:15pm


Harvard Kennedy School, Belfer Center—Online

At a time when U.S. federal debt is at its highest level since World War II—and the post-COVID economic recovery around the world remains uncertain—join the Belfer Center’s Applied History Project for an open session of our Applied History Work Group. Its members—distinguished historians and public servants—study the past to illuminate the most pressing challenges we face today.

For this session, the Applied History Working Group is delighted to welcome Carmen Reinhart, the Vice President and Chief Economist of the World Bank Group, for a discussion on economic recovery in the aftermath of the pandemic, to be moderated by Graham T. Allison.
