A Barack Obama Presidency

What does an Obama administration mean for world financial markets, Africa and South Africa in particular? Protea Hotel, Balalaika, Maude Street, Sandown, Sandton, Gauteng 18 November 2008
A reason for the unprecedented interest in the recent US presidential election is its importance for the United States’ position in the world and in particular how the new president will manage the financial crisis in the US. How will his actions over the next four years influence the nature of the economic system in the US? What will the new president’s policies be toward Africa and the Middle East? And how will the new president manage uncertainty in countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan? This important and exciting workshop will explain how and why Barack Obama won the election. But it will also suggest answers to these questions.
