Wednesday, March 8, 2017, 6 – 8 p.m. 

Santander Bank, 16th floor, 28 State Street, Boston, MA

Cost: $20 - $30

The election of Donald Trump as president has disrupted America's relationships with both its allies and enemies. Given how unprecedented Mr. Trump's approach to diplomacy has proven to be -- both since his election and subsequent to his inauguration -- the longer-term implications of his presidency are of interest in all corners of the globe.

Two veteran prognosticators of foreign affairs -- Bob Savage and Daniel Wagner -- will offer their views on what we may expect in the short and long-term as a result of the Trump presidency, both politically and economically. Mr. Savage -- with a lengthy history at the very top of the foreign exchange trading arena -- has a distinguished track record of making accurate calls in that rather unpredictable domain. Mr. Wagner -- a cross-border risk management expert, author, and journalist -- was one of the few commentators to predict that Mr. Trump would win. Join us for what promises to be an engaging and thought provoking evening.

Catherine Hall's research focuses on re-thinking the relation between Britain and its empire in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. She is particularly interested in the ways in which empire impacted upon metropolitan life, how the empire was lived 'at home', and how English identities, both masculine and feminine, were constituted in relation to the multiple 'others' of the empire. Civilising Subjects looks at the process of mutual constitution, both of colonizer and colonized, in England and Jamaica in the period between the 1830s and the 1860s. Catherine's recent book, Macaulay and Son: Architects of Imperial Britain (2012), focuses on the significance of the Macaulays, father and son, in defining the parameters of nation and empire in the early nineteenth century.

New York: Investment in Infrastructure: More Public Debt or Can We Find Other Innovative Funding Options?
Presented by University of Cambridge Judge Business School
Thursday, March 16, 2017 from 6:45 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. 
1120 Avenue of the Americas (17th Floor), New York, NY

Cost: $20 for CBS alumni to attend. 

Columbia Business School alumni and guests are invited to join Dr. Othman Cole, Cambridge Judge Business School, on a discussion of Investment in Infrastructure: More Public Debt or Can We Find Other Innovative Funding Options?

Investing in infrastructure, both digital and physical, is considered one of the most effective ways to stimulate an economy, create employment, and ensure long-run economic growth. But these projects can be highly capital-intensive, running into 10s of billions. Can governments pay for them? Does it mean more public debt? Or can they be funded through other innovative methods?

In this Business Briefing, Dr. Othman Cole will discuss some of the ways major infrastructure projects can be funded and delivered, through the engagement with private capital and the use of special purpose vehicle (SPV) leverage. He will consider solutions including Project Finance and Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) or Private Finance Initiatives (PFIs) as they are sometimes called.

Given the focus of the new US administration on infrastructure projects in order to create jobs and stimulate the economy, Dr Othman Cole will explore examples of projects in the UK, which is widely seen as the home of PFIs or PPPs.

Alberto Tallone Editore: Perpetuating the Tradition of Excellence of the Aldine Press and Bodoni
Co-Sponsored by the Italian Academy and the Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Columbia University

Monday, March 27, 2017, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Italian Academy (1161 Amsterdam Ave., near 118th Street; on the Columbia campus, NYC)

 

Cost: Free of charge


A conversation with Jane Siegel, Alex Goren, Paolo Valesio, and Eleanora and Elisa Tallone, moderated by Ennio Ranaboldo.

 

This event marks the donation by Alexander Goren of an almost complete collection of books printed by the Tallones to the Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Columbia University.

 

“I believe that Tallone’s opus is particularly appropriate as the contemporary link in the great tradition of Italian fine printing, from Manutius to Bodoni.” --Alex Goren


Alberto Tallone (1898-1968) first established his publishing house in Paris in 1938 taking over Maurice Darantière’s working 18th-century original typographic studio with a vast endowment of original foundry types, and amplified output by developing a distinctive Tallone type. Italian literary critic Gianfranco Contini (1912-1990) observed, "The idea that beauty could merge into truth sprung naturally within Tallone.”

Tuesday, March 28, 2017 from 6:00-8:00 pm
Frankfurt, Kurnit, 488 Madison Ave.,New York, NY

Cost: $30.00 for CBSACNY Members/Students/Faculty; $45.00 for non-Members; NO WALK-INS

On Tuesday, March 28, a special panel of experts will offer us a realistic exploration and update on the newest developments, opportunities and challenges in blockchain. Our panelists include:

• Tim Grant, CEO of the R3 Lab and Research Center 
• Andrew Keys, Head of Global Business Development at ConsenSys
• Jesse Grushak, Head of Product at UjoMusic.com
• Marco Santori, Partner at Cooley
• Michael del Castillo, Member of the Editorial Team at CoinDesk

Unlike financial ledgers and databases used by banks today, a blockchain is not updated and maintained by a company, government, or a single entity. Instead it is run by a network of users. Imagine being able to buy or sell shares without requiring a clearinghouse to settle the trade between buyer and seller. Imagine the cost savings, time savings and ability to eliminate the risk of fraud.

This technology enables participants in a transaction to create an electronic exchange without the need of a central authority by utilizing a network of computers on a common network, legitimizing the transactions by a predefined and agreed upon set of rules of executing transactions. Every block of transactions is evaluated and confirmed by every participant in the network simultaneously, secured and stored by every participant and linked to the previous block. Once recorded a block can never be changed or removed.
