Event Description

Please join the Foreign Policy Association in welcoming Dambisa Moyo, Global Economist, Author, and Investor in the Future, who will speak on the intersection of democracy and future economic growth.  This lecture will be the latest installment of the Foreign Policy Association’s Centennial Lecture Series.  The lecture will be held on December 7th at the Harvard Club (35 W 44th Street, New York, NY 10036).  Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m. 

The Foreign Policy Association’s year-long Centennial Lecture Series, commenced in the spring of 2017, celebrating 100 years of commitment to fostering an educated public discourse on the most influential topics in U.S. foreign policy. The Foreign Policy Association’s Centennial Lecture Series features extraordinary speakers, who will take the long view and imagine the future in their respective disciplines. The importance of providing citizens with accessible, in-depth, non-partisan material is vital to future world peace and prosperity. In one of his final public addresses, President Franklin D. Roosevelt told the Foreign Policy Association that “In a democracy the Government functions with the consent of the whole people. The latter must be guided by the facts.” Now more than ever, this message continues to have resonance, and will remain the guiding principle and goal of the Foreign Policy Association.
