Robert H. Wade 

Professor, London School of Economics

Robert H. Wade is professor of global political economy at the London School of Economics.  A New Zealand citizen, he worked earlier at the Institute of Development Studies (Sussex University), the World Bank, US Congress (Office of Technology Assessment), Princeton University (Woodrow Wilson School), MIT (Sloan School), and Brown University (Watson Institute). 

He has conducted fieldwork in Pitcairn Island, Italy, India, Korea, Taiwan, Iceland, and inside the World Bank and IMF – all steered by an interest in Adam Smith-type questions about how economies create and distribute the basis for material well-being. 

His recent publications deal with:  trends in global growth, poverty and income/wealth distribution; the developmental state (alive or dead?); industrial policy; financial crises; the governance of international economic organizations (eg World Bank, IMF, G20); the “invisible strings” of the Core-Periphery structure of the world economy; and the profession and ethics of economists. 

Author of Irrigation and Politics in South Korea (1982), Village Republics: The Economic Conditions of Collective Action in India (1988, 1994, 2007), Governing the Market: Economic Theory and the Role of Government in East Asia's Industrialization (1990, 2004). 

He was awarded the Leontief Prize for Advancing the Frontiers of Economic Thought in 2008.
