Anne O. Krueger, the First Deputy Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund and former Stanford University professor of economics and director of its Center for Research on Economic Development and Policy Reform, will speak on "The Global Economy at the Beginning of the 21st Century."

She is the editor of several books, including Reforming India's Economic, Financial and Fiscal Policies and Latin American Macroeconomic Reform: The Second Stage, and has published extensively on policy reform in developing nations. From 1982 to 1986, Krueger was the World Bank's vice president for economics and research. She received her doctorate from the University of Wisconsin.

The Gilbert Memorial Lecture Series, which is sponsored by the Department of Economics at the University of Rochester, was established in 1959 in memory of Donald W. Gilbert, professor of economics, vice president for University development, and provost at the University. A central idea for the series is to illuminate the practical side of economics and to show the role of economics in contemporary policy debates.
