Richard Haass (Exclusively WSB)

President Obama inherited a global economic slowdown, large and growing deficits, a mushrooming national debt,and a weak dollar. This unprecedented confluence of circumstances continues to significantly alter international relations as economic forces generate instability within countries, trigger multiple forms of protectionism, and constrain U.S. power and influence. Richard Haass looks at how political developments—for example, a crisis involving Iran or Pakistan or Russia—could make difficult situations far worse. He assesses existing policies and international institutions and what the US and others need to do to increase the odds of a sustained global recovery.

Richard Haass (Exclusively WSB)

The principal characteristic of international relations in the 21st century is turning out to be nonpolarity. This is a world dominated not by one or two or even several states but by dozens of actors possessing and exercising various kinds of power. While the United States remains the single most powerful entity, many other states and non-state actors – ranging from China and India to foundations, media organizations, and terrorist groups – are on the rise. Drawing on his groundbreaking article in Foreign Affairs, “The Age of Nonpolarity,” Haass explains the origins and consequences of a nonpolar world and outlines what the United States must do, both at home and on the international stage, to lead efforts to tackle the global challenges that are this era’s greatest threat to peace and prosperity.

America’s political rhetoric is increasingly heated and hostile to trade, but turning inward would be catastrophic to U.S. interests.  Trade has been an engine of growth for the United States that has strengthened the economies of our partners and allies, lifted billions out of poverty, and brought the world closer together on a range of important policy issues. While educating the public about the economic, development and security benefits of trade is critical, our leaders must also launch programs to create jobs for those whom trade has not necessarily brought prosperity, especially those in industries with rapidly changing technology.  Responding effectively to the deep and understandable anxiety over a rapidly-changing workplace is essential to building and sustaining the popular support to keep markets and borders open. As a former USTR and negotiator of landmark trade agreements like NAFTA, Hills offers a unique vantage point on one of the most controversial issues of our time.

International business executives’ inboxes present more overseas risks and opportunities than ever before. Traditional global challenges to doing business have expanded beyond tariff and other border restrictions to an array of non-tariff and regulatory barriers to success. Added to these more conventional issues that international businesses must navigate are the ever-changing policies of foreign governments, fluid populist movements, rapid technological advances, and a greater awareness of the importance of sustainable development. No one is better positioned than Hills – a former USTR, two-time cabinet officer, respected founder of a national law firm and global advisory consultancy, and member of numerous Fortune 500 boards –  to offer insights at the intersection of business and world politics.

Bryant radically redefines the meaning of poverty and wealth and exposes why attempts to aid the poor so far have fallen short and offers a way forward. 

Though many of us are living without it, everyone is entitled to financial literacy, access to capital and equity of opportunity
to create a secure future and realize their aspirations. 

Risk, in investing textbooks, is taught as the stock market going up and down. In the real world, risk is far more complicated, harder to define and different for every investor. Risk in the real world is not being able to meet your financial goals, which is primarily caused by investors’ own biases and behaviors, particularly buying when the market is high and selling after a pullback. Morgan Housel shares five clear stories of how investors, business executives and everyday people misinterpreted risk to disastrous consequences, and how investors can identify and correct their own biases to make better investment decisions.

If the market never fell, it wouldn’t be risky. If it wasn’t risky, everyone would buy it. If everyone bought it, it would get expensive. When it’s expensive, it’s risky. And when it’s risky, it falls. Morgan Housel shows why market volatility and bear markets are not only normal, but inevitable. Using stock market history, economic theory and current examples of real investors, he walks audiences through the history of bull and bear markets, turning points and the smartest ways investors can navigate volatility—namely, learning how to deal with and accept it, rather than attempting to avoid it.
