The UP Experience 2012 speaker announced – Dambisa Moyo

Dambisa Moyo by Helen Jones PhotographyThe UP Experience is pleased to welcome Dambisa Moyo, international economist and New York Times best-selling author. In her most recent book, Winner Take All: China’s Race for Resources and What It Means for the World, Dambisa tackles one of the most important and least discussed stories of the 21st century: the impending commodity crisis. During her UP presentation, Dambisa will passionately discuss the implications of water, arable land, and fossil fuels running out across global markets; and particularly what it means to the U.S.

Dambisa was named by Time Magazine as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World", and was named to the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders Forum. She is the author of two New York Times best-sellers, Dead Aid and How The West Was Lost, which offered urgent, fresh takes on foreign aid to Africa and the decline of the western economy. Moyo is a regular contributor to publications such as The New York Times, Financial Times, The Economist, and The Wall Street Journal, and has appeared as a guest contributor on CNN, CNBC, Bloomberg, BBC, and Fox Business News.

To understand why Dambisa believes the economic rise of China – along with the West’s complacency – will lead to global change, sign UP today.
