Management of Resources

Resources are the basic input and thus essential drivers of economic activity. Smart use of natural, human, financial, and informational resources is key for wellbeing, growth and development in an economy, as well as for the success of a firm. But disaster may loom when such resources are not managed efficiently. For example, at what point will non-sustainable use of natural resources backfire and hamper the development of a poor country? How does inequality in access to education shape the potential growth of a country? What kind of financial innovation will spur startups and innovative businesses? Various disciplines from management and economics contribute to this theme.
