Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium
In The World Is Curved, David Smick picks up where
Thomas Friedman's The World Is Flat left off, taking readers on an
insider's tour through the private offices of central bankers,
finance ministers, and even prime ministers. He reveals how
today's risky environment came to be and why the mortgage mess is a
symptom of potentially far more devastating trouble. He
wrestles with the two questions on everyone's mind: How bad could
things really get in today's volatile economy? And what can we do
about it? Confronting the ever-increasing challenges of
globalism and the economic problems that plague the United States
from a downward spiraling value of the dollar to the subprime
mortgage crisis, Smick argues that the solution to the problem is
deregulation and encouraging entrepreneurship.
David M. Smick is the Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer of Johnson Smick International, Inc., a financial
market advisory firm based in Washington, DC. He is also the
founder, editor, and publisher of The International
Economy, an acclaimed quarterly. He has served as an
adviser to both Republican and Democratic presidential candidates
and has written for such publications as The Wall Street
Journal and The New York Times.
