In the next 20 years, 75 to 80 percent of the world's population will have the same standard of living as today's advanced countries. What will this extraordinary set of pressures on natural resources and the environment mean for the planet?

Joanne Meyers, director of Public Affairs Programs, Carnegie Council, speaks with Michael Spence about his new book, "The Next Convergence: The Future of Economic Growth in a Multispeed World", addressing such critical economic questions as: How will the global economy develop over the next 50 years? What are appropriate economic models in the wake of the recent global financial crisis? 

The talk is followed by a Q&A.
