Foreign Affairs Presents: A Special Evening with Fareed Zakaria and Gideon Rose

New York


The global economy has long been a complex and political competition that produces winners and losers, but the context of globalization has made markets more unpredictable than ever before.

Foreign Affairs Editor Gideon Rose and CNN host Fareed Zakaria take us on a tour of the latest geopolitical conflicts and trouble zones in an intimate conversation. From the instability of the Eurozone to the war in Syria to the much-feared China slowdown, we are seeing conflicts among societies, religions, and individual leaders ignite global markets. Get the insiders' view on the latest geopolitical trends shaping and shaking the economic outlook.
