As part of growing and developing the network of top business school alumni in Moscow, we would like to invite you to participate in our forthcoming special event in Moscow where you will be joined by Miguel Otero, professor  of Practice of International Political Economy at IE School of Global and Public Affairs. We will discuss a burning topic of the shift of economic dominance and trade wars as the result.
Globalization, demographic shifts and new world economic order are influencing the global economy, creating uncertainties regarding the future and demanding urgent attention.
China is reshaping the landscape of power in the 21st century and wants to lead geopolitics, military, technology and space exploration. Apparently, global superpower – the United States has their own vision… The so-called trade war is clearly a first step towards the further move. What could happen next?
We invite you to session where we will try to demystify International Monetary Power, discuss the mechanics of today’s Currency Wars and try to predict Trump’s Trade Wars future scenarios.
