He addresses such topics as managing financial crises, sustainable development, corporate governance, the role of business beyond its traditional borders, new technologies and their applications for development, the changing rules and inner workings of the new world economy, and the need for new global governance mechanisms in an increasingly complex and inter-linked world.
