WORKSHOP

ROUGH SEAS FOR GLOBAL CAPITAL MARKETS: IMPLICATIONS FOR INDIA, CHINA AND THE US

Friday, Nov. 9th, from Noon to 5:00pm

Sponsored by CGIRS and the UCSC Silicon Valley Initiative

The spillover of the U.S. subprime crisis to Europe and Asia starkly illustrates the complexity, interdependence and possible vulnerability of global financial markets. Former Fed chairman Alan Greenspan traces the causes of the last twenty years of global prosperity to the freeing of global capital after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Is this long period of rapid growth now being threatened? Can we have financial turbulence with economic peace?

This workshop features two distinguished panels to comment on the state of global capital markets, their prospects, and implications for three of the world’s major current and emerging economic powers. The first panel will consist of faculty from UCSC’s world-ranked international finance group, and the second will feature major practitioners and analysts from the financial sector.

Admission is free, but advance registration is required.
