I am delighted to announce that TMR will be hosting a live 60-minute conference call and Q & A session with Dr. Dambisa Moyo, an international economist and one of the world’s leading experts on macroeconomics and global affairs. She is the author of the recently published book Winner Take All: China’s Race For Resources And What It Means For The World.

The live call is scheduled for 9:15 AM EST on Monday, July 16, 2012.

In addition to her new book Winner Take All, Dr. Moyo is the New York Times bestselling author of How The West Was Lost: Fifty Years Of Economic Folly – And The Stark Choices Ahead, and Dead Aid: Why Aid Is Not Working And How There Is A Better Way For Africa. Her work regularly appears in economic and finance-related publications such as the Financial Times and the Wall Street Journal.

Dr. Moyo 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 holds a doctorate in Economics from Oxford University and a masters degree from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. Dr. Moyo completed an undergraduate degree in Chemistry and an MBA in Finance at the American University in Washington, DC.

You are welcome to join us on the free call. The focus of our discussion will be the important issues raised by Dr. Moyo in Winner Take All, which include:

  • The key drivers behind China’s growing appetite for natural resources and their geopolitical implications;
  • What recent events in the rare-earths market can tell us about China’s approach to mineral commodities and other hard assets;
  • The rapidly evolving dynamics of the China – Africa relationship;
  • What all of this means for the rest of world;
  • …and more

In addition to listening in on the discussion, you’ll also have the opportunity to put questions to Dr. Moyo during the call.

I really do hope her view that China does not have intentions of hostile expansion is correct. I may not be around, but my grandchildren will.

The UK’s Financial Times has a relevant article:
“Zuma warns on Africa’s trade ties to China
By Leslie Hook in Beijing
Jacob Zuma, the South African president, has warned that Africa’s burgeoning trade ties with China, the continent’s biggest trading partner, are “unsustainable in the long term”, underscoring the concerns some African countries have about an imbalance in trade ties.
Mr Zuma’s remarks were delivered to the high-level China-Africa Forum in Beijing, just minutes after Hu Jintao, Chinese president, pledged $20bn in loans to Africa, doubling the size of China’s lending pledge to Africa made at the last forum three years ago……snip”

Gareth, thanks for arranging this and posting the audio. I found Dr. Moyo’s perspective deeply insightful. If you can arrange another in the future, a discussion of the super-cycle theories would be most welcome.
