Carlisle Johnson interviews economist Robert J. Barro. Liberal economists have abandoned Keynesian Economics and focus more on appropriate monetary policies, inflation targeting, and liberalization policies. A dynamic world economy has enabled some Third World Countries to become First World Countries. With the exception of Chile, Latin America has experienced many economic and financial problems. Important phenomenona like decline of fertility, evangelization, and global warming are related to economic growth and current public policies.
Robert Barro is an economic advisor to the New York Federal Reserve Bank and the Paul M. Warburg Professor of Economics at Harvard University. He is also coeditor of the Quarterly Journal of Economics and Senior Fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution. Dr. Barro has a BS in physics from the California Institute of Technology and a PhD in economics from Harvard University.
