There is a number limit due to the room size; we appreciate your courtesy to fellow members in keeping your RSVP up-to-date for this popular event!
Presenting: Is China the new idol for emerging economies? by Dambisa Moyo
The developed world holds up the ideals of capitalism, democracy and political rights for all. Those in emerging markets often don't have that luxury. In this powerful talk, Dambisa Moyo makes the case that the west can't afford to rest on its laurels and imagine others will blindly follow. Instead, a different model, embodied by China, is increasingly appealing. A call for open-minded political and economic cooperation in the name of transforming the world.
Dambisa Moyo is an international economist who analyzes the macroeconomy and global affairs.

On the first Saturday of every month, we view a recorded TED Talk (of about 20 min.) from those posted at ted.com. Talks are by a person notable in their field, who has interesting things to say. After viewing their presentation, we'll break into smaller groups and talk about the ideas and opinions presented. Share your thoughts, questions, and experiences around the topic.
Talks are selected because they spark the interest of Rebecca, our TED salon moderator, and are likely candidates for good conversation. Send your recommendation for a future TED Talk Salon - topics or presentations - to Rebecca.
