Emory Professor Jeffrey Rosensweig Spearheads the University's 2000-2001 Great Teachers Lecture Series

Capitalism's growing influence in the Third World is not without controversy. Jeffrey Rosensweig, associate dean for corporate relations at Emory University's Goizueta Business School, will discuss globalization's perceived economic challenges as well as benefits, as part of Emory's Great Teachers Lecture Series. His lecture, "Global Capitalism: Reconciling Its Promise and Pitfalls," will be held at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12, in 206 White Hall, 480 Kilgo Street, Emory campus. Admission is free and open to the public. For information call (404) 727-6216.

Global capitalism is the solution necessary to triumph over poverty, according to Rosensweig. When capitalism enters Third World countries, there is advancement in the creation of wealth, women's opportunities, and overall standards of living. But, says Rosensweig, capitalism must be compassionate: "We need ethical leaders, such as those we develop at the business school, to ensure that capitalism has a human face. It only makes sense to make profits by connecting with all the people, not leaving many behind in poverty," thus disclosing a link between human and economic development.

In addition to discussing the realities of global capitalism, Rosensweig will address its future and identify some potential "hot spots" for investment growth. He will pinpoint skills needed to succeed in a global economy and discuss what children should be studying to prosper.

An international business and finance professor, Rosensweig's research, teaching and consulting focus on business in the "new" global economy. A frequent keynote speaker on topics related to global strategy and economic trends, he was selected seven consecutive years as Keynote International Speaker by the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. Rosensweig was named one of "America's Young Leaders" in 1996 by the Swiss-American Foundation, and in January he was elected to the Council on Foreign Relations. Rosensweig frequently is quoted in the national business press on economic, financial, and global investment topics and he has appeared nationally on ABC World News Tonight and Good Morning America, the NBC Today Show and NBC Nightly News. He often appears live on CNN and CNN International. He has published numerous papers in academic journals and authored the critically acclaimed book, "Winning the Global Game: A Strategy for Linking People and Profits."
