Energy and Geopolitics
Some of the greatest issues facing the world today revolve around energy. Nuclear power, oil and gas, and other sources of energy are playing an increasingly large role in shaping the world's economy and balance of power. While companies and nations race to develop creative solutions and new opportunities, resource-rich countries seem to continue to dominate the game. But for how long? How will countries lessen their dependency on oil? Will we see the proliferation of nuclear power once again?
Join us for a rare conversation in Tokyo between Nobel Laureate Gary Becker and Chicago Booth Dean Edward Snyder. Please invite your colleagues, clients, and friends to this special event.
Speaker: Gary S. Becker
Nobel Laureate, University Professor of Economics and of Sociology, Chicago Booth and The University of Chicago, and Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution
Speaker: Dean Edward A. Snyder
Dean and George Pratt Shultz Professor of Economics, Chicago Booth
