Asia’s impact on the global economy will be discussed in October as Dr. Marcus Noland is featured in the IBC Bank and Commerce Bank Keynote Speaker Series held at Texas A&M International University.
Noland is the Executive Vice President and Director of Studies at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. The PIIE is a nonprofit research organization “dedicated to strengthening prosperity and human welfare in the global economy through expert analysis and practical policy solutions.”
Noland is also a non-resident senior at the East-West Center. The scope of his research includes economics, international relations, political science and more. He has lived in Asia, Africa and the Middle East and routinely researches all three.
China, Japan and Korea are frequent areas of focus for Noland. His book “Avoiding the Apocalypse: the Future of the Two Koreas” won the 2000-01 Ohira Memorial Award, and his most recent release in 2017 – coauthored by Stephan Haggard – is titled “Hard Target: Sanctions, Inducements, and the Case of North Korea.”
The presentation from Noland is titled “Asia in the Global Economy: Implications for the United States and the World.” It will discuss how Asia has managed to consistently outperform the rest of the world economically as it holds half the world’s official reserves and accounts for a quarter of the global output and international trade. It will also cover how Asia accounts for one-third of U.S. trade and over a fifth of outbound investments, and how around half of the trade deficit is with Asia including one-quarter with China.
The presentation is free and open to the public. It will be held Wednesday, Oct. 11 at 6 p.m. at TAMIU’s Student Center Ballroom. It will also be broadcast live on Teams. To view it online, visit go.tamiu.edu/noland.
