Navigating Global Economic and Financial Change
Date: Tuesday 11 November 2008
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building
Speaker: Mohamed A El-Erian
Chair: Professor Willem Buiter
The global economy is experiencing a number of consequential transformations that impact long-standing economic and financial relationships. The resulting change goes well beyond the emergence of a new destination for the global economy; it is also reflected in what is an inevitably bumpy journey that is prone to a series of market accidents and policy mistakes.
In his presentation, Mohamed A. El-Erian will discuss the nature of the transformations. He will detail the drivers, and illustrate how they relate to the unusual developments being experienced by international markets. He will conclude by identifying some of the retooling challenges that confront investors, firms, governments, and the multilateral system.
Mohamed A. El-Erian is co-CEO and co-CIO of PIMCO. He was previously the President and CEO of Harvard Management Company, and a member of the faculty of Harvard Business School. He obtained masters and doctorate degrees from Oxford after completing his undergraduate studies at Cambridge. He is the author of a recent book featured on the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestsellers lists: When Markets Collide: Investment Strategies for the World of Global Economic Change (July 2008, McGraw Hill).
