6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Global Business and Policy Forum “BREXIT: The Future of the City of London and Implications for the Global Economy”

Great Britain is in crisis. Its government is divided over the nation’s withdrawal from the European Union (EU), known as Brexit, and has been unable to agree on an approach to the country’s biggest peacetime decision in decades. A fervent proponent of withdrawal, Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson suspended parliament and critics have accused the Conservative leader of using the five-week suspension to avoid democratic scrutiny as he bids to deliver his pledge to bring the United Kingdom out of the European Union by October 31, with or without a deal. What ultimately emerges could determine the shape of Britain and its place in the world for decades. The Fed has explicitly mentioned Brexit uncertainty as one potential factor weighing on the U.S. outlook and a no-deal Brexit could cause a period of volatility in global financial markets. How did the UK get to this point? What is the future facing London, the UK and the EU? If the pound falls sharply in response to no-deal, what are the implications for the U.S., the U.K.’s largest single-country trading partner? Join Professor Sebastian Edwards for a moderated conversation with Toby Raymond (’86), managing director, Access Equity Management Ltd. who relocated to London in 1992 and has since worked in London’s global financial markets. They will address these questions and more to provide insights and perspectives on the future of Europe and what Brexit means for the United States and the world. This forum is a collaborative partnership between the Center for Global Management and the UCLA School of Law's Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy. Open to UCLA Anderson and Law School Students and by Invitation Only. RSVP required. For more details and to register >>

Lunch Series on “THE TRANSPACIFIC EXPERIMENT: How China and California Collaborate and Compete for Our Future”

Tensions between the world’s superpowers are mounting in Washington, D.C. and Beijing. Yet the People’s Republic of China and the state of California have built deep and interdependent socioeconomic exchanges that reverberate across the globe, and these interactions make California a microcosm of the most important international relationship of the twenty-first century. Join the UCLA Anderson Center for Global Management  Jerry Nickelsburg, director of the UCLA Anderson Forecast in hosting Matt Sheehan for a conversation on his new book. Through rich reporting in his home state of California and a perspective gleaned from years of living and reporting in China, Kai-Fu Lee, former president of Google China described the book as "a must read" as " Sheehan cuts right to the heart of the relationship between Silicon Valley and China: the tangled history, the current tensions, and the uncertain future." Open to UCLA Anderson Students and by Invitation Only. Space is limited. RSVP required. For more details >>

4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
“Israel’s Technology Economy: Origins and Impact”

In his book, Israel’s Technology Economy: Origins and Impact (Palgrave Mcmillan, 2018), David Rosenberg documents how Israel emerged as one of the world’s leading centers of high technology over the last three decades and the impact that it has had, or failed to have, on the wider economy and politics. Based on the study of start-up companies, Rosenberg attributes the rise of Israel’s tech economy to its unique history, political system, and culture, and shows how those same factors have failed it in the quest to diversify Israel’s economy to make it more inclusive and equitable. David Rosenberg is economics editor and columnist for the Haaretz newspaper (English edition). He previously served as Bureau Chief for Bloomberg News and Business Editor for The Jerusalem Post. He holds a BA and MA from Columbia University in Political Science and Middle East History. The discussion will be moderated by Stuart Gabriel, Arden Realty Chair and Professor of Finance who leads the Center for Global Management’s global immersion courses to Israel. This event is organized by the Younes and Soraya Nazarian Center for Israeli Studies and co-sponsored by the UCLA Anderson Center for Global Management. For more details and to register >>
