2002 Global Conference
Register Online Now The 2002 Global Conference focused on how to build prosperity in what has become an increasingly interdependent world.

More than 130 speakers from around the world - senior executives from major corporations, CEOs and analysts from leading financial firms, senior public policy officials, Nobel laureates, academic experts, scientists and journalists - gathered to discuss how to improve global economic conditions.

Opening Monday night with "The Long View: Challenges and Opportunities for a Global Civilization," that panel and subsequent sessions focused on job creation, regional prosperity, the outlook for pension funds, political stability, healthcare costs, immigration, biotechnology, the evolving role of financial institutions and other issues that impact every individual and business.

The conference examined why certain cities and regions are better at developing the skills of their citizens and creating jobs; the role of education in expanding human capital; medical research investments, cancer and heart disease, nutrition and healthcare costs; global regional outlooks; business journalism; the business of sports; and much more.
