The Israel Business Conference will open with a special session dealing with issues of global inequality, the war between religions, the economy's next center of gravity, and other topics on the Israeli and global agenda.
Leading economists in the world have recent been chipping away at economic theories. Inequality is posing a serious threat to the old order. A recession is liable to lead to a severe crisis, followed by waves of nationalism and violence. The economic world, which is being affected by global changes, requires creative solutions to avoid chaos.
Will inequality lead to a violent explosion? Will global economic leaders demonstrate leadership, or will the world be managed by religious and regional forces dictating an uncertain future?
Participants in the opening plenum include:
Prof. Branko Milanovic, Senior Fellow, Luxembourg Income Study and Presidential Professor, Graduate Center, City University of New York, author of the book, "The Haves and the Have-nots: A Brief and Idiosyncratic History of Global Inequality."
Alan Cooperman, Director of religion research, Pew Research Center.
Martin Wolf, Associate Editor and Chief Economics Commentator, Financial Times.
The 2015 Globes Israel Business Conference will be held on December 6-7 at the David Intercontinental Hotel in Tel Aviv.
