Views from the Center


Nora LustigNora Lustig a CGD Board member and an early and effective advocate for combining sound macroeconomic policy with effectively targeted social programs, is the focus of a thoughtful profile in this month's F&D, the quarterly magazine of the IMF.
In Economics with a Social Face Conny Lotze writes that in recent years Nora’s

research and writings became mandatory reading for a new generation of Latin American economists, who were drawn to her resolute advocacy of pursuing macroeconomic stability while seeking intelligently designed social policies.

Now that’s making a difference. I’m proud indeed to count Nora among my friends, and grateful that she makes time to serve on CGD’s board. You go girl!
