The prevalent colonial mindset is one of the main obstacles slowing progress towards achieving sustainable and equitable economies in lower- and middle-income countries.  

This session will explore what coloniality in the mainstream economic thinking looks like and discuss how many of the sector’s policy ideas need to be re-considered if we are to create a global economy that works for all, not just the few.
