Munk school[1]

  1. 1. www.jimdewilde.net<br />www.twitter.com/jimdewilde<br />September 28, 2011<br />Munk SchoolCREATING NEW VALUE IN THE GLOBAL ECONOMY<br />
  2. 2. TURKISH PRESIDENT VISITS SOMALIA: “Pax Turkana”. <br /> <br />KOREAN CORPORATE PURCHASE OF ARABLE LAND IN MADAGASCAR TRIGGERS POLITICAL CHANGE: Daewoo’s investment in Madagascar.<br /> <br />MALAYSIAN FOREIGN INVESTMENT IN EAST AFRICA AND MADAGASCAR DICTATES A NEW ROLE: PETRONAS investment in Ethiopia.<br /> <br />ECUDORIAN OIL MINISTER CALLS FOR AN EMBARGO ON OIL PRODUCTION IN AMAZON RAINFOREST: Acosta on valorizing Ecuadorian rain forest.<br /> <br />MANDATE OF EBRD MAY EXPAND TO NORTH AFRICA: EBRD as a player in North Africa. <br /> <br />MALAYSIAN SOVEREIGN WEALTH FUND INCREASES INVESTMENT IN TURKEY: Khazanah expands in healthcare investment.<br /> <br />TRENDS THAT DEFINE THE 2010s<br />
  3. 3. At one level, the development of a new perspective on global public affairs, whether by Parag Khanna with his unique and strategic discussion of SECOND WORLD, or Kishore Mahbubani on THE NEW ASIAN HEMISPHERE or even Nicholas Taleb’s reformulation of capital market strategies in BLACK SWAN is simply the replacement of what north Europeans call the “Anglo-Saxon” view of economic liberalism and the era where U.S. centred thinking dominated foreign policy discussions with a “Nordic model”.<br />GLOBAL REALIGNMENT THINKING<br />
  4. 4. Why is there so relatively little attention in North American universities and B-Schools to the development of new capital markets strategies in the Indian Ocean zone (try Googling the topic)?<br />Where are the theoretical assessments of how a North African equivalent of the EBRD and the strategic plans for a North African Bank of Reconstruction and Development? Who is teaching the business strategies of the EBRD and their implications for global political economy?<br />Where are the discussions of the new sources of value: the appropriate pricing of arable lands or the conversion of environmental assets into newly formed capital?<br />Sociology of knowledge – questions we don’t always focus on<br />
  5. 5. Dialogue between Qatar and Quito<br />There are people in Bangladesh and Dubai thinking about the first, people in Tunis and Qatar thinking about the second and people in Jakarta and Quito thinking about the third. The restructuring of Greek banks involves Qatari and Emirati financial decision-makers just as the 2007 recapitalization of Citicorp (a financial canary in a dangerous coalmine if there ever was one) required a phone call to Abu Dhabi. <br />
  6. 6. INDIAN OCEAN ZONE from Mombasa to Malaysia <br />
  7. 7. EBRD FOR North Africa<br />
  8. 8. New sources of value in the post economic realignment<br />
  9. 9. A new political framework<br />Develop a Canadian perspective on global affairs which look at what is really happening and develops a liberal market approach to sustainable development and new property rights<br />Define a post-colonial (we still haven’t come up with a better word) approach to the rule of law, “border” disputes and the development of efficient, i.e. non-corrupt capital markets <br />Design an approach to global capital markets based on the realities of the new politics of capital formation.<br />
