The Future of Globalization & Trade and

the Rise of Income Inequality

A Panel Discussion With

 Gerald O’Driscoll, Mark Pingle, and Atul Minocha

International Monetary, Financial, and Economic Policy Experts

Wednesday, February 7, 9:00 a.m. at the Sands

Globalization, trade and income inequality are topics that directly affect the United States strength and security. Policies that maintain national power and manage risk in our current and rapidly changing economic and security environment are essential for the United States. Our panel of international monetary, financial and economic policy experts will share their insights on the impacts of globalization and trade on U.S. national security. They will also share their views on how the global economy affects Americans at home, especially in Nevada. Jerry O’Driscoll will lead the panel discussion. He will be joined by Mark Pingle and Atul Minocha.

Our expert panel will review current “hot” global economic issues and discuss the short, medium and long-term risks these issues may pose to the United States. They will also explain what is meant by “synchronized global economic growth” and how this affects the United States, both positively and negatively. The panel will delve into the global trends impacting income inequality both at home and abroad. Current and proposed economic policies of the Trump Administration will be discussed in the context of both economic security and income inequality concerns. Tying all this together will be a discussion of why global and national income inequality matters to national security and to Nevadans here at home.

Jerry O’Driscoll, a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute and Reno resident, is a world-recognized international monetary and financial expert. He previously served as the Director of the Center for International Trade and Economics at the Heritage Foundation and Vice President and Economic Advisor at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. Mark Pingle is Professor of Entrepreneurship and Economics at the University of Nevada, Reno, who specializes in developing entrepreneurial capacities at UNR and in the community. Atul Minocha is Partner and CMO/Consultant at Chief Outsiders, helping mid-sized companies grow to their full potential and a Professor of Practice at the Hult International Business School of San Francisco and Dubai. He often (over) thinks global economic issues as he flies around the globe.
