Lunch with Dr Dambisa Moyo on "Outlook for the Global Economy"


The defining challenge of our time is how to create solid and sustained economic growth. In essence, how do we restore robust growth in the Eurozone, the United States, and around the industrialised economies creaking under mounting debt, challenging demographics, and stagnating productivity; and how do we boost growth in the developing world – home to 90 percent of the world’s population and where, on average, 70 percent of the population is less than 25 years old – as a period of unprecedented economic expansion begins to slow in some places and regress in others? With global challenges and risks mounting, Dr Moyo’s work teases out the structural underlying evolving trends that will determine the long term fate of the global economy.
