Harvard professor Dani Rodrik met with Saif Gadhafi, the son of Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi, when Saif was being heralded as the man to move Libya toward political and economic reform.
Rodrik didn't end up working with Saif, but in an article for Project Syndicate he argues that working with repressive regimes can sometimes be the right moral choice.
Rodrik is professor of International Political Economy at Harvard and author of "The Globalization Paradox: Democracy and the Future of the World Economy."
