Time: Full-day Sessions

Venue: Tucson, AZ

Techonomy 2012 brings together a diversity of expert voices to discuss how the exponential pace of technology progress makes possible a new world. A wave of accelerating change driven by technology’s advance is washing over our lives, bringing great potential for business and social progress.

On November 13, Markle President Zoë Baird is moderating the panel America’s Economic Opportunity in a World of Services.

Panel discussion:
Technology and networks are lowering barriers to markets worldwide, and the U.S. has a growing jobs problem. As global growth shifts towards developing countries and cities, how can we most benefit? We could be on the threshold of a new era of data-driven progress, but we need a new focus on exports, especially for services, which accounts for the lion’s share of the American economy. What skills does the U.S. need to develop? Can small and medium-sized companies take advantage of expanding access and transparency in the global marketplace? What incentives and policies will enable these global opportunities?
