The gap between per capita incomes in the richest and poorest counties has never been as large as it is today. What explains the historical origins of this divergence, and why does it seem to be so persistent? The CEPR-NYUAD workshop on "Drivers of Economic Divergence: Institutions, Geography, and Technology" examines the long-run determinants of incomes in developing world regions, especially in Asia or Africa. In doing so, the workshop features presentations in political economy, economic history, and development economics.
