Investment in a De-Globalizing World
Despite the overarching global economic malaise, and volatility in the financial markets, Dambisa believes there are opportunities for investors in different sectors, regions and across different asset classes. Sectors such as food, technology and transportation and logistics will all benefit as they are necessities. In this presentation, Dambisa explores the opportunities to invest in emerging economies by exploring predictive indicators such as living standards and growth rates. She’ll explore which asset classes and commodities are trading around historical lows, presenting investors with an attractive investment opportunity.
At a time of rapid technological advancements and innovation, what impact might these trends have for global growth? On the one hand, technological shifts hold promise to meaningfully, and positively, transform livelihoods by enhancing the efficiency and ease of information transfer, connectivity and communication. Yet, there remain legitimate concerns on the net effects of technological advances – particularly in respect to whether and how automation will disrupt and erode certain jobs – the hallmark of emerging markets. In this presentation, Dambisa will explore how, by operating at the frontier of innovation and global trends, the private sector can contribute to the creation of new industries and opportunities that should offer employment and support entrepreneurs in the 21st century tech-based economies.
Democracy Under Siege: Timelines & Policy Trajectory after Trump & Brexit
The election of Donald Trump and the Brexit referendum have together tested the limits of people’s faith in democracy. Many have asked if the results were warped by fake news, or by unaccountable tech companies. In this presentation, Dambisa explores our democratic structures & how this impacts global citizenship. She sheds light on why economic growth is essential to economic stability, and why liberal democracies are failing to produce it today. Dambisa provides a roadmap for how your audience can help contribute to more equitable living standards for everybody, not just a small group.
Global Growth Outlook
The defining challenge of our time is how to create solid and sustained economic growth. In essence, how do we restore robust growth in the Eurozone, the United States, and around the industrialised economies creaking under mounting debt, challenging demographics, and stagnating productivity; and how do we boost growth in the developing world – home to 90 percent of the world’s population and where, on average, 70 percent of the population is less than 25 years old – as a period of unprecedented economic expansion begins to slow in some places and regress in others? With global challenges and risks mounting, Dr Dambisa Moyo’s work teases out the structural underlying evolving trends that will determine the long term fate of the global economy.
