The Economics and Public Policy Forum is a monthly discussion group of Booth alumni and students who gather over lunch to discuss a pre-selected topic and reading material. This is a collegial gathering of equals and we do not present speakers. The Topic and Pre-Reading for May is:

GEOGRAPHY AND ITS IMPACT ON ECONOMICS
The global recession is the biggest development in the global system in recent history. However, Peter Zeihan suggests that to understand how place shapes economics, we need to take a giant step back from the gloom and doom of the current [recent] moment and examine the long-term picture of why different regions follow different economic paths.
