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.

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. 

How do tax cuts affect the macroeconomy? Do they cause a temporary boom, increase long-run growth, or mainly increase the deficit? The talk will describe the consensus of the empirical evidence on this important topic, and discuss historical case studies such as the Reagan tax cuts of the early 1980s and the dramatic changes in marginal tax rates in the 1920s and 1930s. Based on this information, it will probe the likely effects of the most recent tax cut.

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.
