Global Conference 2007

More than 3,000 of the world's leading decision-makers gathered in Los Angeles for the 10th Anniversary Milken Institute Global Conference.

A record 470 panelists on some 120 sessions examined our most entrenched and challenging issues, from reducing our dependence on oil to ensuring that people everywhere have access to a good education, quality health care and well-paying jobs.

The capacity crowd enjoyed sessions as diverse as director Sydney Pollack interviewing architect Frank Gehry, and the future of hedge funds. Other highlights included a look at public-figure philanthropy with Andre Agassi, Michael J. Fox and Ted Turner, and a session on the politics of climate change with Sen. John Kerry and other experts.
