DAMBISA MOYO will discuss the new political and economic challenges facing the world and the ten ways she proposes to improve democracy and reignite global growth as covered in her new book Edge of Chaos.
Moyo is a pre-eminent thinker, who influences key decision-makers in strategic investment and public policy. She is respected for her unique perspectives, her balance of contrarian thinking with measured judgment, and her ability to turn economic insight into investable ideas. Dambisa was named to the list of Time 100 Most Influential people in the world; writes for the Financial Times, WSJ, Barron's, Harvard Business Review and has traveled to 80 countries. She has authored three New York Times bestselling books.
EDGE OF CHAOS sets out the new political and economic challenges facing the world, and the specific, radical solutions needed to resolve these issues and reignite global growth.It offers a radical menu offers ways to improve democracy: making it better able to address the range of headwinds that the global economy faces — including technology and the prospects of a jobless underclass, demographic shifts, gapping income inequality, an unsustainable debt burden, natural resource scarcity and declining productivity) and deliver more economic growth and prosperity.
EDGE OF CHAOS has already been noted in Kirkus Reviews, which reported that "the author's program of remedy is provocative and of much interest to advocates of growth. Moyo clearly identifies systemic problems that the democracies — or what's left of them — would do well to address."
