International economist Dambisa Moyo is a pre-eminent thought leader and advisor to key decision makers on macroeconomics, geopolitics, technology, and millennial trends. Named one of TIME Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world, she is known for her balance of contrarian thinking and measured judgment, her unique perspective on the interplay of business and the global economy, and for her ability to turn economic insights into investable ideas. Moyo is the author of several New York Times bestsellers, including How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly and the Stark Choices Ahead and Winner Take All: China’s Race for Resources and What It Means for the World. In her latest work, Edge of Chaos: Why Democracy Is Failing to Deliver Economic Growth and How to Fix It, she argues that the failure to achieve sustained, inclusive growth underpins today’s rampant political turmoil. Moyo currently serves on the boards of 3M and Chevron.
