About the Project

As globalization blurs the boundaries between national economies, the distinctions between political news and financial news are dissolving. Because events in one corner of the world can have major implications for markets around the globe, staying abreast of the latest political developments and economic data is essential in order to have a clear view of the forces shaping government and business decisions. Through roundtablespanel discussions, and quarterly World Economic Update meetings, I seek to put these current events in a larger macroeconomic context and consider their significance for leaders in both the public and private sector.
