“Continued globalization is inevitable. Given the technological revolution we’re in now, nothing’s going to stop it.” Noted Yale professor and economist Jeffrey E. Garten explores the evolution of globalization, and what the international community must do to adapt in modern times. Garten draws from his book, From Silk to Silicon: The Story of Globalization Through Ten Extraordinary Lives and will bring to bear his experience as a professor and former dean of the Yale School of Management, undersecretary of commerce for international trade in the Bill Clinton administration, and thirteen years as an international investment banker.

Books will be available for purchase after the presentation, and there will be an opportunity to have them signed by the author.

Sponsored by Global Envision.
