Dambisa Moyo Biography

Dr. Dambisa Moyo is an international economist who analyzes the macroeconomy and global affairs. She has traveled to more than 50 countries over the last decade, during which time she has developed a unique expertise on the political, economic, and financial workings of emerging economies, in particular the BRICs and the frontier economies in Asia, South America, Africa and the Middle East. Her work examines the interplay between rapidly developing countries, international business, and the global economy, while highlighting key opportunities for investment.

At the podium Dr. Moyo engages audiences with her unmatched expertise in finance and emerging markets. She discusses everything from where to invest, why to invest, risk vs. uncertainty and where macro-economic policy is headed. With her impressive background and gift for examining issues in a new light, Dr. Moyo keeps audiences hanging on her every word.

Dr. Moyo serves on the boards of Barclays Bank (the financial services group) SABMiller (the global brewer) and Barrick Gold (the global miner). She worked as an economist at Goldman Sachs for nearly a decade and was a consultant to the World Bank in Washington, D.C. She is the author of the New York Times best-sellers "Dead Aid: Why Aid is Not Working and How There is a Better Way for Africa" and "How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly and the Stark Choices Ahead." Her third book, "Winner Take All: China’s Race for Resources and What it Means for the World," was published in June 2012 and premiered at #13 on the New York Times best-seller list.

Dr. Moyo was named as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World” by TIME Magazine and to the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders Forum. She was awarded the 2013 Hayek Lifetime Achievement Award named for the economist, Nobel Prize winner and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Friedrich von Hayek.

Dr. Moyo is a contributing editor to CNBC. Her writing regularly appears in economic and finance-related publications such as the Financial Times and the Wall Street Journal.

She has a PhD in economics at Oxford University and holds a Masters degree from Harvard University. Dr. Moyo completed her undergraduate degree in chemistry and an MBA in finance at American University in Washington, D.C.

Dambisa Moyo Speaking Topics

  • Global Growth Outlook

  • Unpacking Technology

  • Investment Themes in a De-globalizing World

  • Democracy Under Siege: Timelines and Policy Trajectory after Trump and BREXIT

  • The Coming Global Commodity Crisis

    Since 2009, commodity prices have increased over 150%. Dambisa Moyo reveals how commodity scarcity is one of the biggest challenges the world will face over the next decade, leading to higher commodity prices, increased risk of commodity-related conflicts (already there are 25 on-going conflicts around the world with their origins in commodities), and a notable decline in living standards. She details how insatiable commodity demand emanating from a rising global population, increasing wealth, particularly in the emerging world, and rapid urbanization, will outstrip the worlds resource supply of arable land, water, energy and minerals. She explains how forecasts for technology innovations, substitutes (such as shale and non-fossil fuels – solar, wind, nuclear) are overestimated and overly optimistic, and how their risks are not adequately understood. In this context she will discuss how and which specific commodities investors ought to buy versus sell across tradable (energy, minerals) and non-tradable (land, water) commodities, which are all scarce, finite and depleting.

  • Schism: The Coming Economic & Political Paradigm

    Developing countries – where 90 percent of the world lives – are at a crossroads. They are facing a choice between the US model of democracy and private capitalism or the Chinese model of state capitalism and no democracy. Dr. Moyo explains why, in the eyes of many people and policymakers who live across the emerging world, the Western model is under threat, and why the model adopted by China offers a compelling option. With over 70 percent of the population under the age of 25 years across developing countries, there is a growing momentum to focus on delivering economic outcomes and improvements in living standards and de• prioritizing efforts in support of democracy. Dambisa Moyo explains why this pivot is under way, the consequences for geo-politics and global economics, and what the US and the West must do in the face of the choice to compete or cooperate with these emerging economic and political trends.
