“Economics and Peace”
with Special Guest Dialogue Moderator Michael Shank
Tuesday, February 7, 2012 (7:00 – 8:30pm)
Free, advanced registration is required
Join us for a dialogue with Rinaldo Brutoco, President of the World Business Academy, on the topic of “Economics and Peace.” This special dialogue will be moderated by Michael Shank, US Vice President at the Institute for Economics and Peace and a board member of the National Peace Academy.
A recent article by Rinaldo Brutoco, “The Wisdom of Two Generals,” asks: What would you do if you knew that the entire global economic system and Western way of life were in imminent jeopardy? You would likely do whatever you could to protect it. Academy President Rinaldo Brutoco observes that this is precisely the position in which we find ourselves: our way of life is vulnerable and endangered. He goes on to explain that there is a clear way out, outlines a visionary course of action, and issues a call to action. Click here to access the article.
A leading international executive, writer, and keynote speaker for over 25 years, Rinaldo Brutoco is widely recognized as a practical visionary, change agent, and futurist. He uniquely combines theory and practice to assist executives and organizations in adapting to change with breakthrough ideas.
