The January/February issue of Foreign Affairs features a special package on six up-and-coming markets, whose combination of size, recent performance, and economic potential will make them particularly interesting to watch and attractive to investors over the next half decade. Although the picks—Mexico, South Korea, Poland, Turkey, Indonesia and the Philippines, and the Mekong region—are vastly different in their history, governments, and economic structure, they all have crucial strengths to draw on and will play increasingly important roles in the future of the global economy.
On January 29 in Washington, DC, Foreign Affairs Editor Gideon Rose will moderate a conversation among recent authors on the most important components of these previously overlooked markets. Marcus Noland, executive vice president and director of studies at the Peterson Institute for International Economics ("South Korea: The Backwater That Boomed," Jan/Feb 2014); Mitchell A. Orenstein, professor and chair of the political science department at Northeastern University ("Poland: From Tragedy to Triumph," Jan/Feb 2014); and Steven A. Cook, senior fellow for Middle Eastern studies at the Council on Foreign Relations ("Turkey's Democratic Mirage," January 8, 2014) will share their expertise on each country’s global, regional, and national context. They will highlight the economic and political trends that make each country exciting for investors.
This event will be the latest installment of Foreign Affairs Live, the event series that brings the magazine's authors and readers together. (Watch videos from past events on our YouTube channel.) For future information about events, sign up for our newsletter.
