Wednesday, Sept. 29, 2010 * 5-6:30 p.m. * HHC Great Room (811 E. Seventh St.) * SIGN-UP REQUIRED
*Will the 21st Century belong to China? - or to Iran, as the president of Iran has recently proclaimed?
Join Dr. Richard Longworth, senior fellow at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, and the Student Foreign Policy Initiative (SFPI) for supper and a discussion of the impact of globalization.
Is the quality of life in the Midwest for you and others going to be better or worse because of globalization?
After 20 years as a foreign correspondent for the Chicago Tribune and United Press International, Longworth joined the Chicago Council, where he founded and directed the Global Chicago Center. His most recent book, Caught in the Middle, addresses globalization's impact on the Midwest, and, more specifically, why the Midwest has failed to cope with many of these changes. Longworth has twice been a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, has won every major national award for economic reporting, and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations in New York.
