Dambisa Moyo is a global economist and author who analyzes the macroeconomy and international affairs. In particular, her work examines the interplay of international business and the global economy, while highlighting the key opportunities for investment; capitalizing on her rare ability to translate trends in markets, politics, regulatory matters and economics into their likely impact on global business. She serves on the boards of Barclays Bank, the financial services group, SABMiller, the global brewer, and Barrick Gold, the global miner. Dambisa was named by TIME Magazine as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World,” and was awarded the 2013 Hayek Lifetime Achievement Award.

International economist Dambisa Moyo identifies and contrasts the tactical, short-term challenges (debt and deficit management) versus structural problems (unemployment, depleted infrastructure, etc.) affecting the global economy. Dr. Moyo will explain the four directions that the global economy could take over the coming years in the aftermath of the financial crisis. She highlights the risks in the global macroeconomy and geo-political order with weaker global growth and the possibilities of the disintegration of the G-20, disagreements on the path of banking regulation, increased protectionism via outright trade policies and FX interventions (such as beggar-thy-neighbor policies). Against this backdrop Dr. Moyo considers the convergence economically and politically and advises on the best strategic plans for global businesses.


Dambisa Moyo offers recommendations for how global businesses will make investment decisions, manage their people, finance expansion across products and geographies, mitigate risk, how to remain profitable, be competitive and expand their businesses in an economically challenging global economy. Having visited over 50 countries, she leverages her experiences, on-the-ground network and relationships with politicians, policymakers, business persons and opinion leaders to inform a practical strategy for businesses investing across the developed and developing world. She explains what businesses and households have to do to strengthen their balance sheets, and details the policy actions that governments must take to ensure the West is on a constructive long-term economic path.
