Douglas Alexander discusses the global trendlines beneath the headlines that are shaping politics and economics in what many see as the Asian Century.

A combination of economic anger, cultural anxiety, and political alienation are changing our societies, impacting our economies, and altering our politics. How can businesses organisations lead and succeed in this new environment?

The implications of Britain’s referendum decision to leave the European Union and what it means for business in terms of trade, investment, regulation, and long term economic growth.

Douglas Alexander discusses how the oldest alliance is coming under unprecedented strain and the impact for security prosperity and the future of the West.

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.

Nowhere in the world are our economic and strategic opportunities clearer or more compelling than in the Asia-Pacific. The region is home to four of our top ten trading partners, five of our seven treaty allies, the world’s largest and fastest-growing economies—representing 40 percent of global growth and nearly two-thirds of the world’s middle class—and some of the most wired and innovative people in the world.

The rise of Asia, which has already lifted millions out of poverty, will help define this new century. But by what rules, by which means, to what ends—those are the questions that the United States has a profound self-interest in answering. Over the course of ten trips in two years, Deputy Secretary Antony Blinken regularly met not only with the region’s most senior leaders but also corporate executives, innovators, civil society activists and young people.

Hear a candid and forthright assessment of the strategic and economic risks and opportunities for the U.S. in the Asia-Pacific, and how U.S. businesses, organizations, associations, and start-ups should position themselves in the years to come.

 

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)

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.

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
