The Impact of the Economic Crisis on Globalization http://92y.org/economist
I thought we might want to have a post event discussion? However, if people would prefer a pre-event discussion, let me know.
Either way, suggest some good times, and I will set up a meeting at the best consensus time :) Yes, the the squeaky wheel has the advantage.
Professor Jagdish Bhagwati and Zanny Minton Beddoes
The Economist goes from the page to the stage at this candid conversation about the current economic crisis and its effect on globalization. Leading the discussion will be Zanny Minton Beddoes, Global Economic Editor at The Economist and Professor Jagdish Bhagwati of Columbia University, who will offer their insights on the international financial situation and take questions from the audience.
