LSE-UCT Winter School 2016
 
Ms Michelle Groenewald and Mr Caro Janse van Rensburg, both currently busy with their Master’s level studies in Economics at TRADE, took part in the winter school organised by the University of Cape Town (UCT) in association with the London School of Economics (LSE).  The course they attended focused on poverty and development, and what researchers could be doing to enhance their knowledge of these two interrelated phenomena. During the course, interesting insights were exchanged on the causes of poverty and there was also much discussion on possible solutions to this enduring problem.  The heterodox view of the LSE professors regarding the problem of poverty in Africa provided much food for thought.
