The seminar, organized by the Growth Dialogue at George Washington University School of Business, discussed the evolving role of state capitalism in major economies and measures introduced to enhance the efficiency of state enterprises.
State capitalism exists in most countries; however, it is particularly important in the BRICS. The seminar featured three distinguished speakers who examined the roles of state enterprises and the state more broadly in the development strategies of Brazil, China and India. We heard how the state balances its economic objectives with the realities of the market, how it seeks to influence the direction of the economy via SOEs, and how successful these efforts have been. The Seminar featured the following guest speakers:
Aldo MUSACCHIO, Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
Pieter BOTTELIER, Senior Adjunct Professor, School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), John Hopkins University
Ajay CHHIBBER, Former Director General, Independent Evaluation, India and Assistant Secretary General, United Nations for Asia Pacific
Moderator: Danny Leipziger, Professor of International Business and International Affairs, George Washington School of Business; Managing Director, The Growth Dialogue.
