Samriddhi Foundation will be conducting a lecture series on ‘The Secret to Prosperity: What made England Rich?’ with Dr. Eamonn Butler, Director of the Adam Smith Institute. The lecture is intended for college students and is open for everyone.
Did England become rich because of the extraction it carried out during its imperial expansion era?
Or is there something else that explains England’s prosperity? Are there lessons for Nepal?
Come and find out.
