Join WorldBoston for this installment of our popular Chat & Chowder book talk series, featuring Shannon K. O'Neil, Vice President of Studies and Senior Fellow for Latin American Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, in discussion of her recent book, The Globalization Myth: Why Regions Matter.
Chat & Chowder programs are an excellent opportunity to engage with expert speakers and to network with other globally-oriented participants in an informal environment. Each event features a presentation, audience Q&A, dedicated time for networking, and (of course!) a selection of chowders and beverages.
Advance registration is required. We cannot accommodate walk-ins for the in-person program.
In her most recent book, The Globalization Myth: Why Regions Matter, O'Neil argues that the conventional wisdom about globalization is wrong. Over the past forty years as companies, money, ideas, and people went abroad more often than not, they looked regional rather than globally. O’Neil details this transformation and the rise of three major regional hubs in Asia, Europe, and North America. Current technological, demographic, and geopolitical trends look only to deepen these regional ties. O'Neil argues that this has urgent implications for the United States. Regionalization has enhanced economic competitiveness and prosperity in Europe and Asia. It could do the same for the United States, if only it would embrace its neighbors.
