Baylor University's Hankamer School of Business a Sponsor for Newsweek's Fareed Zakaria in Dallas

April 9, 2009

Fareed Zakaria, Editor of Newsweek International, host of "Fareed Zakaria GPS" on CNN and author of The Post-American World, will appear in Dallas as part of the World Affairs Council Speaker Programs. The event is Friday, April 17, 2009, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Zakaria will address "Emerging Markets in a Post-American World."

As the global economic crisis continues, experts predict that emerging markets may not take as great a hit as originally thought. The fact that the tallest buildings, biggest dams, largest-selling movies and most advanced cell phones are now being built in nations like Brazil, Russia, China and India has produced a renewed sense of political confidence and nationalism in these countries. These advances present a number of international challenges and opportunities as businesses and governments learn how to operate in a new global landscape.
