International development saved Albert Hirschman, albeit indirectly. Already displaced, the young Jewish scholar made an escape from Vichy France in 1940 underwritten by streams of thought converging in the United States. He found a patron in John Bell Condliffe, a peripatetic New Zealand economist, whose research on the global economy in nongovernmental and international organizations had led him to the University of California at Berkeley. Having produced some sharp analysis for an international conference Condliffe organized, Hirschman warranted saving. Condliffe’s lobbying in Washington and with the Rockefeller Foundation produced a fellowship at Berkeley, meaning a visa could be issued and with it safety in the United States. This intervention was transformative, drawing Hirschman to the United States as well as into budding discussions about international development, which would both shape and be shaped by his career.1
