From her front row seat as advisor to U.S. CEOs, Anja Manuel untangles the implications of recent events over the long term for the world political system and economy, and the specific impact this may have on your business. She breaks down the avalanche of recent news into understandable realities. For example:

• The impact on U.S.-China relations and the consequences for U.S. businesses who invest there or whose supply chains run through Asia.
