Dr. Maxwell Cameron

go to q&a soon?
Dr. Melissa Ziegler Rogers
01:34:49
My wifi is being spotty so I may type some questions in case I drop
Dr. Melissa Ziegler Rogers
01:35:31
COVID has increased inequality and had disproportionate effects on the poor. What policies would you put in place to improve the condition for the poor in the near future?
Shane Barter
01:35:51
I think we could go to q&a, maybe one more question (US relations). Ian, thoughts?
Dr. Melissa Ziegler Rogers
01:36:01
What type of economic development model would you hope to initiate to integrate low income people better in the economic system of Ecuador?
Dr. Melissa Ziegler Rogers
01:36:23
I think US relations is a good idea
Ian Read
01:36:33
Sure
Shane Barter
01:37:05
Ok- his view of US relations under his presidency, then Q&A.
Ian Read
01:37:55
Melissa, when we transition, can you encourage participants that we will take questions via the Q&A (only)
Carin Bronstein
01:38:16
I see your hand is raised. Can you type your question in the Q&A tab? Thank you.
Dr. Melissa Ziegler Rogers
01:39:13
Q&A question 1 was answered, I think. Q&A question 2 is really about how he entered into politics and was able to rise from a young age
Ian Read
01:41:18
Melissa you're on
Ian Read
01:42:38
Melissa, do you want to try it with video off?
Dr. Melissa Ziegler Rogers
01:43:12
I will try, I have dropped off a few times even with the video off
Ian Read
01:43:20
Otherwise, I don't mind Max fielding the questions. But I can jump in if Max and Melissa prefer
Dr. Melissa Ziegler Rogers
01:45:14
I have a question for Max to ask: COVID has increased inequality and had disproportionate effects on the poor. What policies would you put in place to improve the condition for the poor in the near future?
Ian Read
01:46:05
Another question might be: Arauz began his campaign before Biden was elected. Did he have to throw out his playbook and pivot after the US election? I'm also curious on his vision for Ecuador's relation with Brazil.
Shane Barter
01:50:00
Max, perhaps encourage attendees to ask their questions, especially students?
Ian Read
01:51:27
Max, I will close out for Melissa, just say the word
Ian Read
01:51:36
but no rush!
Dr. Maxwell Cameron
01:51:38
ok
