George Magnus, UBS: Balancing the imbalances


Themes: Globalisation and international business, Guest speakers

George MagnusSome are rich some are poor, some save others spend, but as one part of the global world grows and another shrinks back the traditional power structures between the developed and the developing world are undergoing change and reconfiguration.
