Free Conference on the Global Economy

The George Washington University School of Business presents Crossroads:
The Interplay of Business, Government, and the Global Economy

March 31 and April 1, 2011
Jack Morton Auditorium
805 21st Street NW

The symposium will explore the delicate balance of business growth and the public’s well-being within the context of an international economy that is defined by widely varying markets, cultures, and people. Panels will investigate what shared responsibilities, if any, exist between governments and the global business community and whether markets exist in a vacuum or within a larger social context.
