Zanny Minton Beddoes, the first female editor-in-chief of The Economist, the influential London-based economics-and-politics magazine that has 1.4 million subscribers around the globe, will speak in Minneapolis at St. Mary’s University on Tuesday, April 25.
“What’s Next? Making Sense of a Global Economy,” is presented by Saint Mary’s Hendrickson Institute for Ethical Leadership on the 10th annual Hendrickson Forum.
Minton Beddoes will discuss the interplay of democracy, demography, technology, energy, and government policies as the drivers of economic change. Her presentation will outline her prospects for further economic recovery, how the economy and policy will evolve, and why cheap energy and big data matter.
A former Washington editor of The Economist, Minton Beddoes is an award-winning journalist and broadcast commentator, who joined the publication in 1994. Previously, she spent two years as an economist at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and, earlier, as an economic adviser to Poland.
Admission is $50 for the luncheon event at the Saint Mary’s University Center at 26th and Park Avenue S. on the Saint Mary’s. Register at www.smumn.edu/HendricksonForum.
