Prof. Mariano Tommasi, Chairman of the Department of Economics, Universidad de san Andres and Director of the Centre of Studies for Institutional Development, Argentina, delivered a lecture at ICRIER on the ‘Political Economy of Reforms’ on August 13, 2003. The lecture was organised jointly by ICRIER and the South Asian Network of Economic research Institutes (SANEI). In his lecture, Prof. Tommasi presented some general considerations on the political economy of reform from a Latin American perspective, giving the example of Argentina. Prof. Tommasi emphasised that it is important to focus not on how to play the politics so that we can get reforms through, but on what can be done by countries to improve the quality of their policy-making processes or at least adjust policy recipes to institutional capabilities and incentives. This, he stated, would require political analysis and a history-grounded understanding of the trajectory of each country. Mr. N. K. Singh, Member, Planning Commission, chaired the lecture.
