Even while overall growth seems tepid, tremendous financial opportunities still exist for both states and corporations. But with those opportunities, challenges are building. Dr. Raghuram Rajan knows this from firsthand experience—as governor of the Reserve Bank of India, he played a central role in the third-largest (and growing) economy in the world. In this discussion, he analyzes the economic impact of specific, targeted “global players”—large countries and common global forces—as opposed to a general overview of the world.

Anders Fogh Rasmussen (Exclusively WSB)

We live in an increasingly complex world. Last year alone, we witnessed the British vote to leave the European Union, the election of Donald Trump, and many other geopolitical changes. The coming years—and forthcoming elections across Europe—are likely to bring even more change to the structures of world politics. Drawing on his experiences as prime minister of a coalition government for eight years in Denmark, Anders Fogh Rasmussen discusses these developments and argues that populism is often based on a core of truth. Rather than ostracize populists, establishment parties are often better off welcoming them and working with them. Weaving together current political dynamics, history, and personal experiences, this presentation offers audiences a sharp analysis of current political trends around the world. 

Robert Reich (Exclusively WSB)

One of the nation’s most highly respected public leaders and thinkers who has served in three national administrations, Robert Reich brings exceptional knowledge and experience to his presentations to dissect the big economic challenges Washington policy makers are facing today. With wide-sweeping experience and brilliant wit, Reich explains what’s really at stake, which policy choices are likely to be the most (or least) successful and how an increasingly complicated political landscape will impact Washington’s ability to get things done. A renowned economic expert and New York Times best-selling author, Reich has an unequivocal understanding and ability to address the issues that will have major implications for the President and on future elections.

Corporations are headquartered anywhere, brands and franchises circle the globe and talented employees come from all over the world. The emerging global economy offers unusual opportunities. But it also poses new hazards, and a downturn affects different markets in different ways. What can American and global economies do to expedite growth? How will America improve competitiveness and deal with an increasingly powerful China? The slow global recovery is obscuring one of the most important demographic and business trends in the world: the development of a new global middle class. This new middle class will create new tensions and difficult negotiations as they drive global economic shifts and place new demands on their governments. Robert Reich offers an in-depth explanation of these emerging forces and a pragmatic look at how businesses can make the most of new opportunities while minimizing risk.

It is likely that in coming years the major fault line will shift from the old right versus left debate over the size of government to a new battle between the establishment and the anti-establishment, who see the game as rigged against them. The anti-establishment forces have been on the losing end of the economy for 30 years. Their wages have stagnated, they have had little or no opportunities for advancement, their jobs are less secure, and they worry their children won’t live as well as they do. Globalization and technological change have made them economic losers. But they’re also becoming aware that the political system that generates the rules of the economic game has been captured by those with sufficient wealth to garner more and more influence over it. So the anti-establishment is opting either for “authoritarian” populism, or for fundamental democratic reforms. The former features anti-immigrant and xenophobic movements that feed on themselves. Only the latter — genuine democratic reform — can possibly deliver what they really need. This is the fundamental choice ahead: authoritarian populism or democratic reform.

Christina Romer (Exclusively WSB)

This talk focuses on the lessons learned for monetary policy from the recent crisis and possible strategies for monetary policy going forward.  It covers such topics as the difficulties of expectations management, the role of monetary policy in ensuring financial stability, and the interaction of monetary and fiscal policy. Though much of the content focuses on what has happened with American monetary policy and what we can expect in the future, Romer discusses recent developments in Europe, Japan and the United Kingdom. It also touches on the delicate issue of the repercussions of American monetary policy for emerging economies.

Could iPhone-based apps challenge the world’s leading financial institutions in the same way that Amazon revolutionized commerce and Uber up-ended the transportation sector? Innovation in the software-based financial technology (FinTech) sector has attracted significant attention because of its clear potential to disrupt existing global financial services models. Many analysts believe that Fintech will be the “next big thing” for tech firms and investors in Silicon Valley. Why? A new model for decentralized transactions, often based on blockchain technology, could replace cumbersome traditional processes that empower banks, insurers and old-school investors.  Rapid growth in software solutions that facilitate person-to-person payments, crowdfunded equity investments and smart, self-executing contracts demonstrates that innovations in financial technology truly could revolutionize this sector. The FinTech Revolution will only occur, however, if this nascent technology overcomes challenges in cybersecurity, digital identity and legal regulation. In his presentation, Rosenbach provides audiences with important insight on:

  • The trajectory of key technologies driving FinTech, including blockchain, digital identity management and cyber security.
  • The current regulatory environment and avenues for reform to spur FinTech growth.
  • The potential for FinTech to shift the balance of the global economy and geo-political centers of gravity.
