José María Aznar (Exclusively WSB)

Before José María Aznar took office as prime minister, his country was experiencing high unemployment and little growth. Aznar immediately instituted reforms—liberalizing the market and privatizing industry—bold moves that increased Spain’s GNP by 68% and propelled Spain to the eighth largest economy in the world. Now Aznar shares with audiences worldwide his strategies for reviving flagging economies and shows businesses how to profit in the new market-oriented Europe. Today, his country is now sinking under sovereign debt and facing severe austerity measures and a recession predicted to shrink its economy by 0.8% in 2012. Aznar explores the nature of the financial virus that afflicted Europe, the likelihood of global contagion and what can be done to prevent it.

Erskine Bowles (Exclusively WSB)

Given the remarkable depth of his career in business and government, Erskine Bowles addresses many of today’s most critical current events. Topic areas include:

  • The Debt Crisis: The Tough Choices Ahead for America
  • Reforming America’s Education System

Bill Bradley (Exclusively WSB)

The recent recession proved that society has not learned from the mistakes of the past. While many look to blame private industry for the ongoing economic turmoil, Bill Bradley shows that it is bad political judgment that brought us to the brink of collapse. In this highly informative and timely discussion, Bradley looks at the economic meltdown and outlines how we got here through a mix of too much leverage, not enough regulation and forgetting the economic indiscretions that caused previous recessions. Moving forward, Bradley advocates the need to embrace a culture of innovation that invests in our educational system as the foundation for preventing such economic turbulence in the future. Bradley shares with audiences:

  • The direct connection between faltering economics and failing schools
  • How education is necessary to stay competitive with China and other emerging powers 
  • What steps leaders in Washington need to make to not only fix economic regulation but also fix crumbling schools

Bill Bradley (Exclusively WSB)

In this presentation based on his book, We Can All Do Better (May 2012), Bill Bradley offers his own concise, powerful and highly personal review of the state of the nation. Breaking from the long-held intransigent viewpoints of both political parties, and with careful attention to our nation’s history, Bradley passionately offers a no-holds-barred prescription on subjects including job creation, deficit reduction, education, immigration, foreign policy and the role of money in politics. While equally critical of the approaches of the Tea Party and Occupy movements, he champions the power of individual Americans to organize, speak out and bridge divisions, while calling on the media to assume a more responsible role in our national life. Bradley shares with audiences how we can all—elected officials, private citizens and presidents—do a better job of moving our country forward. His firsthand knowledge of the government’s inner workings, the country’s diversity and the untapped potential of the American people make Bradley the perfect guide to lead this timely and thought-provoking discussion.

The conventional wisdom on Wall Street, inside the Capital Beltway, in the union hall and throughout the shopping mall is that it is inevitable that China will soon dominate the global economy. While at present, doubts are voiced due to the current slowdown in China’s output and the bubble in its real-estate sector, at the fundamental level those concerns are widely seen as temporary speed bumps in China’s inexorable march to be the world’s economic captain. A deeper understanding of the underlying structure and functioning of Chinese banks and enterprises, the framework governing policymaking in Beijing, the arc of the Communist Party’s stronghold over the economy, and the nexus of environmental, health and social challenges affords a different perspective. What are China’s real economic and policy risks?  What role does the absence of democracy in the country play in China’s economic fortunes?  How much has the Chinese economy in fact changed since the advent of reform in 1978?  Where are there opportunities for China’s long-term growth? Harry Broadman, who has worked throughout China at the field level since 1993, will excite audiences with this fresh perspective on the trajectory of China’s economic destiny.
