105. POWER: CORPORATIONS
William Dalrymple, Helen Thompson, Jens Tholstrup
Saturday 29th June 13:30 (60 Min)
Hiscox Tent
The world today is dominated by household brands that seem to traverse nations, religion and culture. Is this a new phenomenon or should we be looking at patterns from the past? Is there anything to be learned from the ancient Assyrians or the Hanseatic League? Or is their clout really a product of the growth of global communications networks? And if so, how does their influence transcend national boundaries and how are they likely to help or hinder the world’s future development? Historian William Dalrymple, Jens Tholstrup, Executive Chairman of Oxford Innovation Finance, and Helen Thompson, Professor of Political Economy at Cambridge University, promise a lively discussion.
