“Edge of Chaos”

Dr. Dambisa Moyo

Tuesday, July 10, 2018
1:00-1:30 p.m. CT.

July’s Cover to Cover 

A generation after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the world is once again on the edge of chaos. In Edge of Chaos, Dambisa Moyo 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.

Dambisa enumerates the four headwinds of demographics, inequality, commodity scarcity and technological innovation that are driving social and economic unrest, and argues for a fundamental retooling of democratic capitalism to address current problems and deliver better outcomes in the future. In the twenty-first century, a crisis in one country can quickly become our own, and fragile economies produce a fragile international community.

Edge of Chaos is a warning for advanced and emerging nations alike: we must reverse the dramatic erosion in growth, or face the consequences of a fragmented and unstable global future.

Tuesday, July 10, at 1:00-1:30 PM Central Time.
