“Predicting the Future of the World Economy”

When professional stock analysts can’t predict the market – and when monkeys throwing darts at a newspaper pick as many winners as seasoned portfolio managers – who, if anyone, can predict what’s ahead? Five of the foremost economists of our time match wits with Gideon Rose, editor of Foreign Affairs, to uncover the trends that will move markets in the months and years to come.

The panel includes:

Jacob Frenkel, chairman, JPMorganChase International
Glenn Hubbard, dean and Russell L. Carson Professor of Finance and Economics, Columbia Business School,
Ruchir Sharma, Head of Emerging Markets and Global Macro, Morgan Stanley Investment Management
Joseph Stiglitz, University Professor, Columbia University
Shang-Jin Wei, NT Wang Professor of Chinese Business and Economy; Director of the Jerome A. Chazen Institute of International Business, Columbia Business School

Presented by the Chazen Institute of International Business with media partner Foreign Affairs
