Book Talk: Brave New World Economy

On Wednesday, April 13, 12:30-2:00 p.m. Dr. Robert  Isaak,the Henry George Professor of lnternational Management at Pace University,will give a talk on his  new book, Brave New World Economy, at the Mortola Library, Pace University, Pleasantville.

The book provides an engaging look at the road to a sustained economic recovery.

The global finance system can be regulated to prevent massive credit fraud, tame capitalism, confront the sovereign debt crisis, and move towards investing in the real economy and full employment. "Obamanomics", and American reinvention can lead to a sustained economic recovery but only together with major domestic, European, and global monetary reforms in cooperation with emerging nations.

For decades, the U.S. dollar has served as the world's reserve currency. But after the global market meltdown and the resulting massive stimulus spending meant to keep the Great Recession from becoming an even Greater Depression, confidence in America's ability to make good on its growing debt is at all-time lows. In Brave New World Economy: Global Finance Threatens Our Future, Wilhelm Hankel and Robert Isaak two extremely controversial, yet highly respected experts on international economics and management describe how "Obamanomics," the Euro crisis, and shift of economic growth from the West to emerging economies, if handled properly, can lead to true economic stability and job creation.
