This lecture will look at how profound changes in macroeconomic policy institutions, particularly central banks, have helped contribute to a dramatic improvement in global macroeconomic stability over the past decade. Are these innovations durable and will they endure in the face of a potential geopolitical and other shocks? Will future innovations lead to convergence on the “Asian monetary model”, with its high emphasis on exchange rate stability, or on an inflation targeting model? Where is further innovation now most needed? Is it in finance ministries, or international financial institutions?

Solo Speech  Thomas Schelling: What Makes Greenhouse Sense?

Is the world economy threatened by climate change from global warming? Is it threatened by the costs of coping with global warming? Is there any possibility that some international regime can be constructed that will succeed in allotting shares of responsibility and provide incentives to stabilize the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere? Who will bear the main costs of that activity? Who will suffer, economically and otherwise, if nations prove unwilling to bear those costs?

Solo Speech  Shelly Lazarus: Managing a Creative Business Creatively: Making Magic and Logic Succeed Together

In the Creative Economy where ideas are the new currency, the biggest challenge businesses face is how to become idea-driven organizations.

Traditional companies may hesitate to embrace creativity and big idea thinking, considering it to be soft and fuzzy, chaotic and unpredictable. But is that really true? Can you get great ideas without wrecking the company’s fiscal discipline or derailing its functional underpinnings, turning managers off or alienating customers?

Absolutely. When you embrace ideas, innovation, and creativity, you don’t lose your core, you unleash your opportunity. And there are practical principles that can help companies get there.

Solo Speech  Thomas Schelling: An Astonishing Sixty Years

The health of the world economy requires peace--the absence of war and the presence of confidence. The threat of nuclear weapons did not disappear with the demise of the Cold War. The good new is that since August 1945 the world has survived sixty-one years without any nuclear weapons used in anger. Was this good luck, good policy, good sense, or some of all three. How can we explain this unexpected abstinence? What can be done, what should be avoided, to make it through the next sixty years?

Dialogue  Dialogue: The Era of Creative Economy -Global Cooperation and Challenge

In the latter part of the 20th century and as we move further into the 21st, it is clear that economic growth is being driven more and more by the quality of human capital as our economies become increasingly knowledge based.

This phenomenon is developing in a context of globalization where former barriers to the free flow of goods, services and people will gradually fade and a fully integrated world market place will emerge, perhaps even supported by a global currency. Is this a realistic or utopian view of what lies ahead?

Science, technology and above all innovation, will lead this evolution as communication of ideas through the extraordinary development of the internet will continue to expand exponentially. The world seems to becoming one great collaborative laboratory exploiting the creativity of human capital wherever it may be found. Is this a fair assessment of where we are and where we may further develop?

But what are the challenges to these optimistic scenarios? In this new world of creative ideas is the international protection of intellectual property rights adequate to encourage creativity and development in all aspects of science, technology and innovation?

Do the rapidly developing economies of Asia not have a particular interest in these issues since they appear to be the epicenter of economic growth in the coming decades?

These and other issues arising from the subject will be debated by the panel with maximum time given to audience participation.
