Theoretician ahead of his time. Kashif Hasnie has given the idea of freedom of mind as a tool for development (socio-economic). As a Columbian his ideas are now a permanent feature of country development reports in multilateral agencies throughout the world. The great Amartya Sen believes that Kashif's theoretical framework will go a long way in the world of development economics. As a native of Pakistan, students at Harvard and the University of Chicago have benefited from Kashif's lectures on issues pertaining to political economy of developing countries.
