Scott Beaulier discusses the stark contrasts in living standards between countries.

Scott Beaulier is the Adams‐​Bibby Chair of Free Enterprise and Associate Professor of Economics at Troy University. Beaulier’s interest include applied microeconomics, development economics, and political economy.

Prof. Scott Beaulier analyzes the data and explains why these differences in living standards exist.
