James Baker, III (Exclusively WSB)

Mr. Baker served as secretary of state as the Soviet Union collapsed and the Cold War ended, leaving the United States in a uniquely preeminent position – diplomatically, militarily and economically. Now, he says, terrorism and the development and proliferation of weapons of mass destruction have summoned the United States to a new and more difficult kind of leadership, both for our nation's own protection and to preserve peace and stability around the world. Mr. Baker reviews these and other global challenges, such as turmoil in Ukraine and the Middle East, North Korea's nuclear challenge, the need to integrate China into the international system, and the continuing battle for free trade and investment.

James Baker, III (Exclusively WSB)

Wearing his hat as a former secretary of the treasury, Baker provides valuable insights on the current economic situation.

He offers his perspective on which steps should be taken to ensure the economy is headed in the right direction and the financial markets thrive.

José Manuel Barroso (Exclusively WSB)

With an equal measure of sincerity and wit, José Manuel Barroso draws on his vast experiences to put the current geopolitical environment into context during this engaging and enlightening presentation.

José Manuel Barroso (Exclusively WSB)

During his tenure as President of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso earned global praise for his leadership and guidance of 28 nation states toward a burgeoning and more peaceful future. He offers earnest and unique insights regarding the future of the European Union, and with gravitas and humor, shares with audience members the lessons he has learned and challenges faced. Expanding on his belief that the forces of solidarity within the EU, both economically and politically, are stronger than the forces of fragmentation, Barroso analyzes cultural differences, security, global economies and Germany’s role as an economic powerhouse, and examines how these powerful issues and opportunities could impact your organization.

José Manuel Barroso (Exclusively WSB)

In this moderated discussion, José Manuel Barroso examines subject matters such as: the future of the European Union, international security, the global economy, geopolitical trends, multicultural solidarity, emerging markets, and major nations of global concern such as America, China, Russia, Germany and Brazil. This presentation is focused and tailored to meet the specific needs of your audience.

State Department cables expose the nature of China's economic march throughout Africa. One document quotes the U.S. Assistant Secretary for African Affairs—in rare candor—describing China as "a very aggressive and pernicious economic competitor with no morals."? ?Behar’s award-winning exposes have long documented this uncomfortable truth—even as every American President since Nixon has embraced the same policy: Trade with China and time is on our side. But what if it’s not true? What if we are only helping cement the Communist Party’s grip on the nation? How can the West get out of this economic and ethical conundrum? China’s economy, at this stage of its development, is vastly corrupt in ways most Westerners can’t imagine. The country is the world’s largest counterfeiter of Western products—and its economy would be seriously impacted if the Party honestly cracked down on those "fakes."?Meanwhile, from Algeria to Zambia, from aluminum on up the resource ladder to zinc, Behar will discuss an economic model of exploitation and corruption that is at once formidably efficient and tragically flawed—and how China’s new "scramble for Africa" is interlocked with America’s economy to the detriment of the world’s poorest citizens. On a planet that's being consumed by those who live on its surface, behind that Made-in-China tag at Wal-Mart and inside our iPods is a parasitical and mutually-reinforcing death spiral. With China now the world’s second-largest economy (and gaining fast on the U.S.), we all need to ask if this matrix is now set in stone.

Ben S. Bernanke (Exclusively WSB)

Drawing on his extraordinary career as chairman of the Federal Reserve, Dr. Ben S. Bernanke examines the current U.S. and global economic landscape and the key challenges facing the world today. His presentations are customized for each audience with conversational questions and answers from an interviewer.

A generation after communism’s collapse, the future of free market capitalism isn't what it used to be. Public wealth, public investment, and public ownership have made a stunning comeback. Certain that command economies are doomed to fail but afraid that truly free markets will spin beyond their control, the political leadership in China, Russia, the Arab monarchies of the Persian Gulf and other authoritarian states have invented a new system: state capitalism. Each in their own way, they’re using markets to create wealth that can be directed toward the achievement of political goals. Governments now dominate key domestic economic sectors. The oil companies they own control three-quarters of the world’s crude oil reserves. They use state-owned companies to manipulate entire economic sectors and industries. They own enormous investment funds that have become vitally important sources of capital for Western governments and banks weakened by financial crisis. An expert on the impact of politics on market performance, Ian Bremmer illustrates the rise of state capitalism and details its long-term threat to relations among nations and the future of the global economy.

At this presentation audiences will learn about:

  • The rise of state capitalism
  • Why it exists and how it works
  • The threat to free market capitalism

To navigate globalization's choppy waters, every business leader analyzes economic risk when considering overseas investments or looking at market exposure. But do you look beyond reassuring data about per-capita income or economic growth--to assess the political risk of doing business in specific countries? If not, you may get blindsided when political forces shape markets in unexpected ways--from European accession in Turkey, social unrest in India, or protectionist legislation on China. Acclaimed political analyst and entrepreneur Ian Bremmer explains that by blending political and economic risk analysis, you make savvier investment decisions--seizing valuable opportunities around the globe while avoiding danger zones.

At this presentation audiences will learn:

  • How to spot political risk on the horizon and balance it against economic opportunities—and what it means for your global investments
  • How to understand the opportunities, and dangers, of dramatic Chinese growth
  • What are the trends around global terror, proliferation, and shifting geopolitics, and how it impacts the global markets
  • What growing political risk means for the global economy, and where opportunities are
