The International Growth Centre (IGC) and the Stanford King Center on Global Development will be hosting a one-day conference at Stanford on December 5th on the theme of “Firms, Trade and Development.” The event will be organized by David Atkin (MIT), Dave Donaldson (MIT), Cecile Gaubert (Berkeley), Pete Klenow (Stanford), Meredith Startz (Stanford), Eric Verhoogen (Columbia), and Chris Woodruff (Oxford).
