Managing Risk in an Unstable World

3:20 pm - 4:35 pm, Monday, Apr 08, 2024

To navigate globalization, every business decision-maker weighs economic variables when considering overseas investments or market exposure. But to spot crucial opportunities and manage risk, they must also understand the political factors and trends changing our world in real-time. Whether it's increasingly contentious relations between China and the United States, the war in Ukraine, a more complex regulatory environment in Europe, a newly global focus from India, surges of populism in Latin America, heightened competition in Africa, or dozens of other politically driven trends, political analyst and entrepreneur Ian Bremmer will detail how political risk is creating new sets of business winners and losers.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to spot political risk on the horizon and balance it against economic opportunities

  • How to identify the broader trends remaking tomorrow's global balance of power

  • How to process the technological changes now transforming geopolitics
