Is there something “broken” in the conventional Ricardian Free-Trade Model that has nourished great waves of globalization over the last three decades? Where are the jobs that are supposed to replace the ones that are “lost” to foreign competition? Where are the new IT-driven technologies that will take us to the “next big thing?”  Is the specter of global protectionism on the rise again? What implications does all this have for global organizations? How will all this affect US businesses seeking to navigate through global economic uncertainty and the exit of Britain from the EU?

Professor Farrokh Langdana, Director of the Rutgers NJ Executive MBA Program, will attempt to put all this in perspective.

This session will be of particular interest to companies who need to fully understand the economic backdrop to survive and thrive in this increasingly uncertain business world.
