Early life

Ravi Kanbur is British,[6] he was born in India and brought up in India and England.[7]

Education

Kanbur gained his degree in economics from the Gonville and Caius College, University of Cambridge in 1975. He studied for his masters (1979) and doctorate (1981), also in economics, at Worcester College, University of Oxford.[7][8] He studied under the Nobel Prize winning economist Amartya Sen and Sen has stated that his association with Kanbur has been beneficial to his writing.[9]

Resignation as Director of the World Development Report

In May 2000 Kanbur resigned as director and lead author of the World Bank's World Development Report. His resignation followed the publication of the initial draft of the 2000/2001 report on the internet. Kanbur's initial draft argued that, "anti-poverty strategies must emphasise 'empowerment' (increasing poor people's capacity to influence state institutions and social norms) and security (minimising the consequences of economic shocks for the poorest) as well as opportunity (access to assets)."[10] The final version of the report still contained the three central pillars of: (a) empowerment, (b) security and (c) opportunity, however the order was changed to (a) opportunity (with emphasis given to market-driven economic growth and liberalisation as ways of reducing poverty), (b) empowerment and, (c) security.[11][12] The World Bank denied that US treasury secretary Larry Summers or anyone else had influenced the report to make it less radical.[6] Kanbur's resignation came a year after the resignation of the World Bank's senior vice-president and chief economist, Joseph Stiglitz.[13]

Personal life

Kanbur is married to Margaret Grieco, Professor of Transport and Society at Edinburgh Napier University, Scotland.[7]
