Dambisa Moyo: Is China the new idol for emerging economies? The developed world holds up the ideals of capitalism, democracy and political rights for all. Those in emerging markets often don’t have that luxury. In this powerful talk, economist Dambisa Moyo makes the case that the west can’t afford to rest on its laurels and imagine others will blindly follow. Instead, a different model, embodied by China, is increasingly appealing. A call for open-minded political and economic cooperation in the name of transforming the world. Dambisa Moyo is an international economist who analyzes the macroeconomy and global affairs. WHY YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO HER? Dambisa Moyo’s work examines the interplay between rapidly developing countries, international business, and the global economy — while highlighting opportunities for investment. She has travelled to more than 60 countries over the past decade, studying the political, economic and financial workings of emerging economies, in particular the BRICs and the frontier economies in Asia, South America, Africa and the Middle East. Her latest book,Winner Take All: China’s Race for Resources and What It Means for the World, looks at how commodities markets influence much more than the global economy — and examines the possible consequences of China’s unprecedented rush for commodities such as oil, minerals, water, and food, including the looming specter of commodity-driven conflict. She is the author of the brilliantly argued Dead Aid: Why Aid Is Not Working and How There Is a Better Way for Africa and How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly and the Stark Choices Ahead. Previously, she was an economist at Goldman Sachs, where she worked for nearly a decade, and was a consultant to the World Bank in Washington.

Lesley Hazleton: The doubt essential to faith When Lesley Hazleton was writing a biography of Muhammad, she was struck by something: The night he received the revelation of the Koran, according to early accounts, his first reaction was doubt, awe, even fear. And yet this experience became the bedrock of his belief. Hazleton calls for a new appreciation of doubt and questioning as the foundation of faith — and an end to fundamentalism of all kinds. Writer Lesley Hazleton is the author of ‘The First Muslim,’ a new look at the life of Muhammad. WHY YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO HER? A psychologist by training and Middle East reporter by experience, British-born Lesley Hazleton has spent the last ten years exploring the vast and often terrifying arena in which politics and religion, past and present, intersect. She’s written about the history of the Sunni/Shi’a split, as well as books on two of the Bible’s most compelling female figures: Mary and Jezebel. Her latest book is The First Muslim, a new look at the life of Muhammad, the founder of Islam. In researching her book, she sat and read the full Koran again — exploring the beauty and subtlety in this often-misquoted holy book. As she says: ” I’m always asking questions — not to find “answers,” but to see where the questions lead. Dead ends sometimes? That’s fine. New directions? Interesting. Great insights? Over-ambitious. A glimpse here and there? Perfect.” “Very interesting perspective. Her talk has motivated me to read and learn more about the Koran and make up my own mind rather than get second hand information filled with hate.” Alan Klein, commenting at Informed Comment, juancole.com

RICHEST MAN IN MIDDLE EAST Part 1: AlWaleed Bin Talal (born 7 March 1955) is the son of Prince Talal and Mona Al Solh, the daughter of Riad Al Solh, Lebanon’s first Prime Minister after its independence. AlWaleed is Prince Talal’s second son. Al Waleed is the grandson of Saudi Arabia’s FOUNDER Ibn Saud. Whilst he is a Saudi Arabian business tycoon and investor – this was achieved AFTER he worked hard at achieving the CRUCIAL educational goals he set out to achieve – [whilst he is a senior member of the Saudi royal family]. He is the founder, CEO, and 95%-owner of Kingdom Holding Company (KHC) located in the capital of KSA, Riyadh. His “personal wealth” was estimated in excess of US $18 billion – yet this money should be identified as held in TRUST by the Sovereign state of Saudi Arabia. Arabian Business (AB) might rank him as the most influential Arab in the world – yet as the financial Trustee of the Sovereign assets of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) this is not at all surprising. As of January 2013, the “Bloomberg Billionaires Index” (“BBI”) which can never be an accurate representation of REAL wealth of the planet as several crucial individuals do not appear – more importantly several of the so called Billionaires are acolytes of one very rich entity based in London – if this is taken into account the BBI is identified as nothing like the reality. The BBI lists AlWaleed bin Talal as the 10th-richest man in the world, yet he should feature far, far higher if a closer representation to the truth was made transparent. [With an estimated net worth of over US $29 billion]. To truly understand any person it is CRUCIAL to ascertain a person’s personal educational achievements! Al Waleed worked hard to earn a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Business Administration from Menlo College in California in 1979. After further hard slog he was to earn a Master’s degree in Social Science (MSc) with honours (Hons) from Syracuse University in 1985. Not surprisingly, the staff AlWaleed bin Talal employs tend to not only have a solid educational background – but also tend to be people of integrity. Part 2: Part 3: Part 4:
