Book Launch Event
, "On the Trail of Capital Flight from Africa: The Takers and the Enablers" by Leonce Ndikumana and James K. Boyce will take place on March 25th, at 3:00pm ET in the Gordon Hall conference room. The launch seminar will be chaired by Distinguished Professor and Co-Director of PERI, Robert Pollin and it will be hybrid – face to face with remote connection on zoom. On the Trail of Capital Flight from Africa investigates the dynamics of capital flight from Angola, Côte d'Ivoire, and South Africa, countries that have witnessed large-scale illicit financial outflows in recent decades. Quantitative, qualitative, and institutional analysis for each country is used to examine the modus operandi of capital flight; that is, the 'who', 'how', and 'where' dimensions of the phenomenon. 'Who' refers to major domestic and foreign players; 'how' refers to mechanisms of capital acquisition, transfer, and concealment; and 'where' refers to the destinations of capital flight and the transactions involved. The Zoom link will be posted a few days before the event.
