* Covid-19 and Globalization│James Galbraith(The University of Texas at Austin, Professor): The Covid-19 pandemic made rapid globalization grind to a halt. The era in which human resources and products were freely exchanged was ephemeral. G2 trade war has escalated to the New Cold War. This is a historic snafu; the US lacked global governance, Europe seems to be completely lost since Brexit and China is mustering up their powers and resources to become a new leader. How will the situation unfold? Daron Acemoglu, the author of ‘Why Nations Fail’, James Galbraith, professor at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs and Ryu Jin, CEO of Poongsan Group will gather together to share their insights into the globalization ahead of us; how it will change and evolve. James K. Galbraith holds the Lloyd M. Bentsen Jr. Chair in Government/Business Relations at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs and a professorship in Government at The University of Texas at Austin. Galbraith holds degrees from Harvard University (BA) and Yale University (MA, M.Phil, PhD). He was Executive Director of the Joint Economic Committee of the United States Congress in the early 1980s and has advised the State Planning Commission of P.R. China and the Greek Finance Ministry. He chaired the board of Economists for Peace and Security from 1996 to 2016 (www.epsusa.org) and directs the University of Texas Inequality Project (http://utip.lbj.utexas.edu). He is a managing editor of Structural Change and Economic Dynamics. Galbraith′s most recent books are Welcome to the Poisoned Chalice: The Destruction of Greece and the Future of Europe (Yale, 2016); Inequality: What Everyone Needs to Know (Oxford, 2016).The End of Normal: The Great Crisis and the Future of Growth (Free Press, 2014). #JamesGalbraith, #Covid-19, #Globalization
