Fareed Zakaria discusses "The Politics and Culture of the Global Economy."
Never before in modern history has the need to understand global politics been so urgent. Widely respected for his ability to spot economic and political trends around the world, Fareed Zakaria has an international reputation as a global thinker. Zakaria, editor of Newsweek International and column writer for the Washington Post, will share his insights on the new terrorism and what to do about it. He contends that the forces that have allowed modern terrorism to operate effectively are in many cases the same ones that have helped create the new global economy-cheap and easy communication and transportation. Zakaria believes that we will have to use these same tools to fight terrorism at its core.
