America in the 21st Century: A View from Europe

First Lecture in Four-Part Series: America in the 21st Century--Views from around the World

Thursday, May 10, 2012 8:00 AM to 9:15 AM


Martin Wolf


The United States was the world's biggest, most innovative, and most influential economy in the 20th century. But with high unemployment and an increasingly noticeable disparity in wealth distribution, it will soon cease to be the biggest. How easy will it be for the U.S. to remain the most innovative and influential in the 21st century?

As one of the world's foremost experts on economics, Financial Times editor and commentator Martin Wolf is uniquely positioned to offer insights on the changing nature of the global economy and how Europe, struggling with serious financial problems of its own, fits into the equation. What are some ways that America and Europe can work together to tackle some of the most pressing financial problems of the 21st century?

Martin Wolf is associate editor and chief economics commentator at the Financial Times, which he joined in 1987. He previously worked at the World Bank and the Trade Policy Research Centre. Wolf's books include Fixing Global Finance and Why Globalization Works.
