Conferment of Honorary Doctorate: Professor Peter Nolan
Copenhagen Business School is delighted to invite you to the Conferment of Honorary Doctorates Tuesday 2 June 2009.
Visiting Professor at the Asia Research Centre Peter Nolan, Sinyi Professor of Chinese Management, Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, is one of the Honorary Doctors appointed this year.
In his professional seminar Peter Nolan will discuss his upcoming book "Crossroads: The End of Wild Capitalism"
As the world moves into the new millennium, humanity stands at a crossroads. The epoch of 'wild capitalist globalisation' is fast drawing to a close, hastened by the global financial crisis. The contradictions of capitalism in the early twentieth century are, for the first time global in nature. In the search for solutions to the multiple threats to the sustainability of life for the human species, there is no alternative other than to work together across national frontiers, cultures and levels of development, to find a pragmatic, non-ideological, cooperative way to overcome these threats. The threats derive from the nature of capitalist globalisation itself. The solutions also are immanent within the universal tendencies of capitalism. The path taken by the United States, at this crossroads in its own history and in that of the human race will determine the outcome for the whole human species.
The central question addressed in this book is this: Can the United States engage constructively with both China and the Islamic world to devise cooperative solutions to the inherent contradictions of wild capitalist globalisation, which threaten the very survival of humanity?
