    On July 1st people in Mexico will cast their ballots in what has been dubbed "the biggest election in Mexican history" due to the number of public issues being debated. This election will redefine the role of the government in areas such as economic development, trade, security and energy.

    88 million registered Mexican voters will elect their next president from candidates Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, Ricardo Anaya, and Jose Antonio Meade each with different ideas about the role of government. Also on the ballot is the election of 500 members of the Chamber of Deputies and 128 members of the Senate. On the same day, 30 out of 32 states will also hold local elections.

    Ambassador Wayne will share his insights based on years of working with Mexican leaders and people.

    A generation after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the world is once again on the edge of chaos. In Edge of Chaos, Dambisa Moyo sets out the new political and economic challenges facing the world, and the specific, radical solutions needed to resolve these issues and reignite global growth.

    Dambisa enumerates the four headwinds of demographics, inequality, commodity scarcity and technological innovation that are driving social and economic unrest, and argues for a fundamental retooling of democratic capitalism to address current problems and deliver better outcomes in the future. In the twenty-first century, a crisis in one country can quickly become our own, and fragile economies produce a fragile international community.
