The Temptation of Going Alone: protected markets and world turbulences

View from the Top - “The Temptation of Going Alone: protect markets and world turbulences”

Curtin University's Graduate School of Business has the pleasure of inviting you to attend a View from the Top Seminar Series event “The Temptation of Going Alone: protected markets and world turbulences” with David Balloni, Consul of Italy in Western Australia, on Thursday 20 July.

Two pillars of the post-World War period are currently at stake, free trade and open markets. Several factors are now influencing public opinion to revert to that of the early 20th century.

Which macro factors consequences affect finance, business and job markets? And which micro factors effects impact workers and consumers? With the absurdity of an increasingly tiny world on the one hand, and multiple-layered borders on the other, the temptation is to go it alone.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from Mr Balloni, as well as to network with fellow CGSB alumni, students and staff.
