The Myth of the “Efficient” Dictatorship

The economic development credited to regimes in China, Rwanda, and Kazakhstan has elevated the lure of “efficient” authoritarianism long symbolized by Singapore. This deep dive will examine how accomplishments credited to such regimes are often overblown or outright fabricated to whitewash corrupt and repressive dictatorships. Speakers will also discuss the historical evidence for why free markets and open societies are the best engines for human development.
