A Conversation with Nobel Laureate & NYU Stern Prof. Michael Spence & The Economist's NYC Bureau Chief Matthew Bishop

In conjunction with The Economist’s “Future of Jobs” report (September 2011), Nobel Laureate Michael Spence, William R. Berkley Professor in Economics & Business at NYU Stern, will discuss recent trends in the job market, both in the US and around the world, with Matthew Bishop, the US business editor and New York bureau chief at The Economist.

Drawing from his recent book, The Next Convergence: The Future of Economic Growth in a Multispeed World, Spence will describe the rapid growth occurring in developing markets as they catch up with the industrialized West. Outlining the drivers of growth as well as the challenges that developing countries face, he will discuss the implications of this rapid growth for people living in industrialized nations. Additionally, Bishop and Spence will touch on what’s ahead for the United States and what the country needs to do to avoid being left behind.

Q&A with the audience will follow.
