All Yale alumni are invited to join The Chicago Council on Global Affairs for "The Future of Globalization: What Does History Tell Us?" with Jeffrey E. Garten, Author and Dean Emeritus, Yale School of Management. In conversation with Ed Luce, Chief US Commentator, The Financial Times.

Globalization is often viewed through the lens of economics and understood in terms of trends and policies. But, argues Jeffrey Garten in his new book From Silk to Silicon: The Story of Globalization Through Ten Extraordinary Lives, a fascinating narrative of this powerful process is revealed through the lives of those individuals who linked people, ideas, and enterprise, at critical moments in world history. From the empire-building of Genghis Khan through Margaret Thatcher’s thrust to liberalize markets, and Deng Xiaoping’s opening of China, the groundbreaking accomplishments of a small number of pioneers have radically altered our world. What traits unite these disparate innovators and leaders of global integration? How have past trends in globalization impacted the present, and how might they shape the future?
