Development Economics TED Talks

Here is a selection of TED talk videos which should help when studying Development Economics, and help to provide fresh and sometimes unusual perspectives on the topic. A suggested way of making use of these for your studies is to watch an entire video and summarise its key points in 100 words or under. This is no easy task as there will be lots to say, so you have to select what you think were the key / most interesting points. It is also good to include example detail (regions / countries / place names, dates, and figures) as good examples always help to boost your understanding of development.
