Meeting with Professor Winiecki
Tomorrow At Washington KF

WASHINGTON, D.C. The Kosciuszko Foundation in Washington DC is pleased to invite you to a presentation by professor Jan Winiecki: “Poland’s economic progress and the BRICs”. (BRICs is an acronym that refers to the countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China; which have all been designated to be in a similar stage of newly advanced economic development. The term was originally coined by a Goldman Sachs report from 2003 which highlighted the possibility that by 2050 these four economies would be wealthier than most of the current major economic powers). The lecture is based on professor Winiecki’s forthcoming book: “Economic Development Patterns and the BRIC Group of Countries: Theory, History and Future Prospects”.

Professor Tomasz Mroczkowski of American University will introduce the speaker, provide comments and lead the discussion.

The event will be held at The Kosciuszko Foundation, located at 2025 O Street, N.W. Washington DC 20036 on Friday, October 10th, from 5 pm – 7 pm. The event is made possible thanks to the Earhart Foundation and the Polish Heritage Foundation.

This is a free event. A reception follows.
