"Sometimes it's important to get your hands dirty, even if you're an economist. Being 'on the ground' is essential when you're researching the developing world. It’s the operational experience, the 'being there', that gives you a proper insight into what's happening in these nations, the true nature of their problems and what might be done to help them.
Over the years I’ve worked in Malawi, Madagascar, Mauritius - all sorts of developing countries. I've advised governments in Africa and the Caribbean and organisations including the World Bank and the Commonwealth Secretariat. That's because nothing beats the 'hands on' approach in terms of building a genuine picture of an economic situation."
