Dambisa Moyo: How the West Was Lost

Thu, Feb 17 2011 - 6:00pm

Dambisa Moyo

Dambisa Moyo, International Economist; Author, How The West Was Lost and Dead Aid

Richard Waters, West Coast Editor, Financial Times - Moderator

Moyo daringly claims that the West can no longer afford to simply regard global up-and-comers as menacing gatecrashers. In a world where Western economies hover on the brink of recession while emerging economies post double-digit growth rates, Moyo calls out the economic myopia of the West and the radical solutions that it needs to adopt to salvage its global economic power. A former consultant for the World Bank and former emerging markets investment banker at Goldman Sachs, Moyo was named by Time Magazine as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World," and was nominated to the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders Forum.
