Professor Casanova named one of 50 Most Influential Intellectuals in Iberoamerica

Professor Lourdes Casanova, Senior Lecturer and Academic Director of the Emerging Markets Institute at the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management, was recently named one of the 50 Most Influential Intellectuals in Iberoamerica. IberoAmerica comprises the countries in the Americas that are former colonies of Spain and Portugal.

The digital magazine on international relations esglobal said the list, which also includes the former President of Costa Rica and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Oscar Arias is intended “to highlight the enormous talent and variety of points of view generated in Spanish and Portuguese as languages able to offer alternatives to the dominance of English in the world today.”

“My award recognizes the growing importance of Latin American economies and businesses,” said Professor Casanova. “It is a privilege to share the recognition with such an important group of leaders who I admire.”

Born in Spain and educated in the United States and Spain, Professor Casanova specializes in international business with a focus on Latin America and multinationals from emerging markets. She is co-author of: ‘The Political Economy of an Emerging Global Power: In Search of the Brazil Dream,’ 2014, coauthor of ‘Innovalatino, Fostering Innovation in Latin America,’ 2011 and author of ‘Global Latinas: Latin America’s emerging multinationals,’ 2009.

The list was prepared for esglobal by the Madrid-based think tank FRIDE, the Foundation for International Relations and Foreign Dialogue; with the assistance of FLACSO, the Latin American Social Sciences Institute. Those selected are experts in the fields of economics, history, literature, journalism, art, activism and sociology, from countries including Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Portugal, Spain, Uruguay and Venezuela. The list includes another Cornell scholar, writer Jose Edmundo Paz-Soldan, professor of Spanish literature and director of graduate studies in the Department of Romance Studies at Cornell University.

Fourth Annual Emerging Markets Institute Conference: China, Reaching Out to the World

Over 100 Cornell alumni and business professionals in attendance.

The Fourth Emerging Markets Institute conference “China, Reaching out to the world: Global investments and partnerships,” held in New York City in mid-October was well attended by over 100 Cornell alumni and business professionals. The topics, Chinese investment in the United States, ensuring natural resources, technological hubs and emerging multi-national corporations, were covered during panels held throughout the day at the Cornell Club.

During the first panel, Chinese investment in the US, Thilo Hanemann, Research Director with the Rhodium Group, shared that China's foreign direct investment in the US totaled $14 billion last year. China's FDI in the US for the first half of 2014 was slightly lower than the same six-month period last year, and the focus is shifting from acquisitions of assets to real estate, advanced services and manufacturing. Such states as Texas, Michigan, Ohio and Illinois are top recipients of Chinese investment in energy and auto industries.

"On the Chinese side there is a lot of demand to go global, on the US side there's a good supply of a system that welcomes investments," said X. Rick Niu, President, Starr Strategic Partners. "As domestic GDP in China goes down, money has to go elsewhere to find a better return, and if you flip the coin you'll see why America is ideal."

Niu said the world's two largest economies want to have a bilateral investment as the US remains "an ideal destination for FDI from China".

At the close of the conference, EMI Executive Director Richard Coyle announced that planning would begin for next year’s Emerging Markets Institute conference to focus on India and relations with the U.S.
