Open any news site: global trade and the looming “trade wars” are making headlines—invoking seismic shifts, reversals of course, and hairpin policies to send investors scrambling. But where are we really headed, and why? As we enter this new economic era, Marc L. Busch—Georgetown professor, scholar, and consultant for the likes of McKinsey & Company and the World Bank—is the expertly unflappable speaker on all things trade; a vital interpreter of the global market.
Unfortunately, only a small percentage of companies have a real understanding of how trade will actually affect their bottom line. Marc L. Busch is a multiple award-winning professor at Georgetown University, a scholar, host of the trade-centric podcast Tradecraft, and the authority on today’s global economy. What does international trade mean for you, your industry, or your business? We’re currently engaged in an “epic battle of free trade,” says Busch, and as volatile as that battle might be, this is an opportunity for companies to help rewrite the rules of those trade deals. President Trump’s tactics are isolating the US from from a number of international markets, and as Busch explains in his talks, this is a non-partisan issue. “There is no Red versus Blue state in this context,” he says. “It’s just chaos.” With wit, lucidity, and customization to your industry, Busch will steer your audience through.
Busch is currently the Karl F. Landegger Professor of International Business Diplomacy at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service; Professor of Government, and Professor of Business Administration at Georgetown University. He has taught at both Harvard and Queen’s University, receiving awards for teaching at all three institutions. Forbes Magazine named his course, “Business, Government and the Global Economy,” one of the Top 10 Most Innovative MBA courses in the United States.
