This Guatemalan ceramic owl teaches us why we need to develop smart cooperative mechanisms between firms and governments in developing countries. Neither of them alone can solve the problems of innovation and market access needed to create the jobs these countries need.
I have experience working as a consultant developing policy proposals to boost economic sectors. I´m currently a PhD Candidate at George Mason University, exploring the role of trade partners in accelerating economic growth. I am 2009 Fulbright alumni.
