Speaking Topics
  • Snapshot of the Global Macroeconomy

    International economist Dambisa Moyo identifies and contrasts the tactical, short-term challenges (debt and deficit management) versus structural problems (unemployment, depleted infrastructure etc) affecting the global economy. Dr. Moyo will explain the four directions that the global economy could take over the coming years in the aftermath of the financial crisis. She highlights the risks in the global macroeconomy and geo-political order with weaker global growth and the possibilities of the disintegration of the G-20, disagreements on the path of banking regulation, increased protectionism via outright trade policies and FX interventions (such as beggar-thy
    • neighbour policies). Against this backdrop Dr. Moyo considers the convergence economically and politically and advises on the best strategic plans for global businesses.

  • Meeting the challenges of the evolving global economy

    Dambisa Moyo offers recommendations for how global businesses will make investment decisions, manage their people, finance expansion across products and geographies, mitigate risk how to remain profitable, be competitive and expand their businesses in an economically challenging global economy. Having visited over 50 countries, she leverages her experiences, on-the-ground network and relationships with politicians, policymakers, business persons and opinion leaders to inform a practical strategy for businesses investing across the developed and developing world. She explains what businesses and households have to do to strengthen their balance sheets, and details the policy actions that governments must take to ensure the West is on a constructive long-term economic path.

  • A Call Against Complacency

    For over 300 years, the market based capitalist model, built on a culture of incentives, has been successful in creating economic growth, powering industrialization, driving western competitiveness, and meaningfully reducing poverty around the world. Over the last 50 years deliberate government policies in the US have incentivised bad behavior and caused widespread negative unintended consequences and eroded the three key drivers of economic growth; capital, labor and productivity. Dambisa Moyo details the policies that will induce individuals to make the right choices that will lead to America’s long-term economic success. She will explain what policies America needs to engineer a turnaround and set the US and Western economies back on track.

  • The American Dream versus the Chinese Vision

    Dambisa Moyo contrasts the on-going economic challenges of the West and the Rise of the Rest – countries like Brazil, Russia, India and China. She explores how deliberate policies in the US led to the erosion of capital, labor and productivity – the three key ingredients that drive economic growth. Dr. Moyo outlines how, against the recent prosperity of the BRICs, the US economic difficulties and Europe’s debt crisis tip the global balance and impact living standards of the average American. She details the interlinkages of debt, trade and geo
    • politics between the two major world economies and scenarios of how their interdependency can be triggered to survive or disintegrate.

  • Inside China: China’s Economic Risks and Opportunities

    By 2020 China is forecasted to become the largest economy in terms of GDP. Dr. Moyo details the implications of China, the worlds most populist nation, taking the helm for global trade, geo-politics, and the worlds financial infrastructure (equities, FX, bonds). Domestic policies will transform China from an investment based economy to consumption driven, this will affect China’s linkages and reach across the emerging world – where 90 percent of the worlds population lives. Dambisa Moyo will present the challenges that China faces and the risk to her ascendancy including: demographic shifts, commodity scarcity, shadow financing, and a non
    • democratic political infrastructure. Whether its businesses, politicians or individuals, we can’t afford to not understand what we are up against. China’s Race for Commodities and What it Means for the World Dambisa Moyo explains the three-pronged strategy that forms China’s systematic and deliberate global campaign for global resources. The scale of China’s race for resources is astounding – current spending is approximately US$1 billion a week to secure commodity assets worldwide. China is set apart from other countries and her strategy directly affects commodity prices and geo-politics. Dr. Moyo will outline how China’s aggressive approach – buying mines and agricultural land, re-routing rivers, and lending billions of dollars in cash in return for access to oil fields – places her in a unique position, particularly across the worlds emerging economies. Dambisa Moyo explains why China’s resource campaign has far-reaching implications for the price of resources and the manner in which commodity prices trade on and off global market exchanges.
