World Economic Roundtable

Jan 27 2011

The World Policy Institute partners with the American Strategy and Economic Growth Programs of the New America Foundation to convene the World Economic Roundtable.  The Roundtable involves some of the best thinkers from both the policy and investment worlds, who meet 10 to 12 times over the course of the year to think through some of the most challenging questions facing the global economy. Attendance is by invitation only.

Roundtables in 2012 addressed future scenarios for China, Brazil, and geo-economic risk; the Spanish and Italian debt crises; global macro scenarios; financial reform; and India's labor market. Speakers included Sallie Krawcheck, Megan Greene, Robert Herz, Edward Greene, Kevin Lu, Leland Miller and Craig Charney, Hans Humes and Paulo Viera da Cunha, Bruce Stokes, and Eric Best.

Roundtables in 2011 addressed scenarios for Chinese growth and its impact on the global economy; the European debt crisis; the changing global energy map; and assessments of global risk scenarios, among other themes. Future roundtables will address the world regulatory map, global consumption trends and policies, and the world talent map.

Policy papers issued by the roundtable are available online. The roundtable launched the widely cited “The Way Forward” paper  by Daniel Alpert, Robert Hockett, and Nouriel Roubini. Papers by David Beim, Michael Pettis, Peter Marber, and Jay Pelosky are available on the question of "Is China an Engine or Drag on Growth?"  “Revising the Global Energy Map,” featuring Fareed Mohamedi of PFC Energy, uncovered the major changes that are occurring in the global energy market and how they impact the economy, investment strategy, and policy.

Other recent speakers and commentators have included Carmen Reinhart, Ian Bremmer, Stephen Jen, Nader Mousavizadeh, Joseph Gagnon, Yasheng Huang, Michael Kumhof, and Raymond Torres.
