Global Business and Policy Forum “Wealth Taxes: Good Idea or False Promise”? UCLA Anderson School of Management

Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders have both proposed ambitious wealth taxes as part of a plan to reduce inequality in the United States. These taxes will take from the very rich and use the revenue to support government programs for those at the bottom and middle of the income distribution. While the U.S. is considering adopting wealth taxes, most of the rest of the world have repealed them. Join the UCLA Anderson Center for Global Management and UCLA School of Law’s Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy in hosting Eric Zolt, Michael H. Schill Distinguished Professor of Law Emeritus for an examination of the arguments for and against a wealth tax, the likely revenue and economic consequences, and the administrative challenges of taxing the very wealthy. This forum is a collaborative partnership between the Center for Global Management and 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 >>

The 2020 Wilbur K. Woo Greater China Business Conference: A Technology Driven Transformation of Society Enterprises and Consumers, UCLA Anderson School of Management

A notable technology-driven transformation is occurring in the Greater China region. This transformation has been enabled by government policy, changes in consumer preference and the Chinese consumers’ willingness to share data and try new services, availability of capital, pace of adoption and enterprise driven innovation. Leapfrog innovation is notable in many areas including artificial intelligence, payments and high speed, 5G mobile networks. Meanwhile, steady advances in artificial intelligence, robotics and internet services are disrupting traditional industries and enabling new business models. Technology-based transformations in socially important sectors such as healthcare, education, and transportation are helping address societal issues. The ability to understand China’s unique environment and context is an essential element of “contextual leadership” and important for rising global leaders—understanding the uniqueness of China but also understanding innovation practices of interest for the rest of the world.

The 2020 Wilbur K. Woo Greater China Business Conference will bring together successful U.S. and Chinese leaders, innovators, influencers and academics from a variety of industries and sectors for a day-long conversation. Experts will share their thoughts and perspectives on how technology is driving the transformation of society, enterprises, and consumers around the world with a focus on China and the U.S. and the contextual leadership that is imperative in the evolving global economic landscape. For more information, please visit the 2020 conference website.
