Tom is speaking to the Leaders in Dubai Business Forum 2008. He's on the program along with former World Bank president James Wolfensohn, the explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, his good friend and former McKinsey Managing Director Rajat Gupta, Mohamed ElBaradei (Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency), Sante Fe Institute President Geoffrey West, Rudy Giuliani, and others. Tom reports that the growth of Dubai continues at an astonishing rate—though there are some signs that the global financial fiasco is beginning to take its toll. If you were there, we welcome your comments, and if you'd like to get the PPT presentation, you can use the link below:
