The Rise of New Economic Powers and America’s Future by Dr. Kislaya Prasad, research professor and academic director of the Center for Global Business, released in early 2020 is a commemorative record of the Center’s Emerging Markets Forum (EMF) series that was held from 2011 to 2018. The EMF series and this book were supported in part by CIBE, a Title VI grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
Over the course of the eight years, EMF featured over 110 prominent speakers from organizations and companies such as the Brookings Institution, World Bank, Ford Motor Company, and Tata Communications.
According to Prasad, “readers of the book will find answers to questions such as: What role women are playing in the economic transformation in emerging markets? Is Africa an attractive place for U.S. companies to do business? What does India bring to the table? “
In keeping with the Title VI CIBE mission of making international business resources widely accessible, the Center will make the book available to faculty, educational institutions, and other organizations as the content remains timely and relevant in understanding the impact of emerging markets on international and U.S. business.
