ASST-516-01 Risk and Innovation at Intersection of Enterprise, Policy and Markets in 21st Century Asia
Fall for 2017-2018
Sharma, Amit
This course explores significant geo-political and international economic events of the early 21st century impacting Asia, and the evolution of commercial enterprise and the financial markets amidst this dynamic security environment. Central to this exploration will be an analysis of 1) the implications to sovereigns and commercial entities related to ongoing and persistent economic vulnerabilities and specific international security threats, 2) the effectiveness of various policy prescriptions to address these risks – specifically in Asia, and 3) how global businesses, capital markets participants and governments must collaboratively manage a more comprehensive “risk paradigm.” Through specific examples in a series of topic areas, this course will investigate the nature and development of capital markets across emerging and developed Asian economies, with a particular focus on areas embroiled in conflict since 2001, as well as entities significantly challenged by the 2008 global financial crisis. These issues will be discussed in the context of state-based vs private sector interests and influences, as well as the diverse nature of emerging and developed markets’ financial technologies. In addition, the course will study how the relationship between commercial and financial entities with sovereign and institutional policy makers will need to continue to evolve to address this new “risk paradigm” to protect global financial/economic integrity, enhance commercial resiliency, and sustain geo-political spheres of influence.
