ECON+ Interview With Otaviano Canuto – Natural Resources Abundance: Blessing or a Curse?

Otaviano Canuto, Executive Director at the World Bank, once again is with ECON+ to continue this series of interviews on the global economy. This time, we tackle the topic of Natural Wealth and its perception of either being a blessing or a curse. We base the chat on a few World Bank notes written by Otaviano and his colleagues. Otaviano explains that an abundance of natural resources is intuitively expected to be a blessing. Nonetheless, it has been argued for some decades that large endowments of natural resources—oil, gas, and minerals in particular—may actually become more of a curse, often leading to slow economic growth and redistributive struggles. The findings are in alignment with the view that there is no clear deterministic evidence of natural resource abundance as a curse or a blessing; therefore, the effect on a country depends on other determinants. As usual, an enriching interview led by Luisa Porritt, with Pedro Sousa contributing to the discussion.
