Ian Bremmer
, President, Eurasia Group

Hideyuki Takahashi, President & Chief Executive Officer, Nomura Holding America, Inc.
In an age of terrorism, weapons proliferation, market volatility and religious conflict, events in emerging-market countries threaten global stability. Ian Bremmer, founder and President of Eurasia Group, a leading political-risk consultancy, explains why understanding events in these countries is critical to a deeper perception of the global marketplace. Dr. Bremmer founded Eurasia Group in 1998 because he felt that politics matter at least as much as economics to those who invest in emerging markets in a global economy that is politically riskier than ever. For this lecture, he draws on his recent book, The J Curve: A New Way to Understand Why Nations Rise and Fall–listed as a must read for 2006 by the Harvard Business Review–to illustrate how the world’s political decision-makers make choices, and why nations rise and fall.

Followed by a booksigning.
