EVENT: The Financial Crisis and ‘Soft Power’

October 21, 2009

The world economy is slowly recovering but the effects of the financial disaster are far-reaching, especially for the U.S. Besides the immediate impact of the crisis on economic growth and employment, there are serious questions about America’s confidence in its global leadership and the future of its relationship with Asia.

On October 23, Douglas Bereuter, President and CEO of The Asia Foundation, will deliver a keynote address at a conference on the effects of the financial crisis on the U.S. and its key Asian allies. Titled “Implications of the Financial Crisis on American, Chinese, South Korean and Japanese Soft Power in East Asia,” the October 22-24 conference will be hosted by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs in Chicago, Illinois.
