7:45 – 8:00 a.m. Breakfast
8:00 – 9:15 a.m. Meeting

In this Special Edition of the World Economic Update, the panel will depart from its usual agenda of assessing near-term developments and instead consider some of the broader global economic trends and longer-term prospects that are setting the terms of current policy debate, including the impact on jobs and wages, the changing role of China in the world economy, and the backlash against globalization. In addition to regular partipants Stephen Roach and Daniel Tarullo, the panel will include two distinguished academic economists with government policy experience -- Alan Krueger of Princeton and Matthew Slaughter of Dartmouth.
