Curacao is proud to announce the keynote speaker; Niall Ferguson! Niall Ferguson is one of the world's leading historians of the global economy, as Professor at Harvard University and Harvard Business School and Senior Fellow at Oxford University and Stanford University.

He is also an internationally-acclaimed writer of works such as The Ascent of Money, The Pity of War, The Cash Nexus, Empire, Lessons for Global Power, and The War of the World. His new book, Civilization: The West and the Rest, is an international bestseller and basis for a multi-part television documentary. A prolific commentator on contemporary economics and politics for the American and British press (as well as an experienced radio and television presenter), his work regularly appears in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Foreign Affairs, the New York Review of Books and many other publications. He is a regular contributor to The Financial Times.

Controversial, expansive, and eloquent, Niall Ferguson has been called "the most talented British historian of his generation". But the ambitious themes he explores in his work have urgent relevance to the present as well as the past: the costs and benefits of economic globalization; the interface between finance and politics; and most recently, the strengths and limitation of American global power.

These are all subjects relevant to our theme; Midshore; the new reality.

THIS CONFERENCE WILL TAKE PLACE ON MARCH 12-13, 2015, AT THE SANTA BARBARA BEACH & GOLF RESORT.
