Sustainable Growth Through Capital Markets Conference

Purpose of the Conference

In his bestseller book co-authored with Prof. Acemoglu, “Why Nations Fail” Chicago University Economics Professor James Robinson finds that throughout history, the institutions explain the divergence in economic development between nations. In his new book with Prof. Acemoglu, “The Narrow Corridor” that will be published by October 2019 Prof. Robinson will explore the delicate balance between power of societies and the state which gives birth to sustainable prosperity.

So what type of institutional structures carry nations forward? The foundation for economic development is based on a market mechanism where the private and public sector work collectively and in a proactive manner to remove the old and less efficient and create the new and more productive. The success depends on this collaborative capability to create efficient systems that produce new and efficient value propositions for global markets. In the next keynote Chicago University Economics Professor Ufuk Akçiğit will discuss the architecture of finance, firm dynamics and systems that carry countries forward.

However, vital here is to redesign the demand and supply structures in an economy and create circularities that produce and consume value in a sustainable manner. Through only establishing right circular economic architectures countries may start walking on sustainable development paths.

Eventually you become what you finance. What is the ideal design to stimulate growth and how can we redefine the role of capital markets in this framework? What are new components that we need in this system where ideas can be commercialized and nurtured from local to global scale, to create sustainable value not just for the shareholders but for all stakeholders with a long term view? How can public and private capital be reorganized by widening the roles of asset managers, private equity & venture capital firms, investment banks and pension funds and repositioning the finance industry with a new purpose?
