Book Launch: Economics and HIV, the Sickness of Economics
Posted on: October 11 2013, 11:13 am

Greetings, all. 

Economics and HIV, the Sickness of Economics by Deborah Johnston, SOAS, offers an insight, for both economists and development practitioners generally, into why economics has largely failed to provide useful insights on the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa.   

Standard impact assessments of AIDS suggest that it will do little to affect economic growth and may even increase welfare.  Why does mainstream economics suggest that such a serious health condition will have almost no economic impact? 

The launch will be held at SOAS in London on 23 October 2013 at 6pm.  Go here for more details:  https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/nurture-success-events/CttDHDd5sR0
