Philadelphia, PA, December 2, 2010 – The Global Interdependence Center (GIC) is pleased to announce the establishment of the Global Society of Fellows, which will comprise a group of accomplished scholars and practitioners who will convene leading policymakers, market participants, and academics from around the world to help foster dialogue and identify solutions to some of the world’s most pressing economic issues. The Global Society of Fellows will receive initial funding through a generous philanthropic grant of $1 million from the Morgan LeFay Dreams Foundation, the personal foundation of globally recognized investor and thought leader Paul A. McCulley.
Mr.McCulley is an authority on global markets, central bank policy and macroeconomics. He will also serve as the first Chairman of the Global Society of Fellows.
GIC, founded in 1976, encourages the expansion of global dialogue and free trade to improve cooperation and understanding with the goal of reducing international conflicts and improving worldwide living standards. GIC provides a forum for the exchange of divergent perspectives and initiates global partnerships. By engaging experts to identify emerging economic, social, and political issues vital to the global community, GIC enables world policymakers to find practical solutions. In recent years, GIC conferences have dealt with such topics as Food and Water, SARS, Avian Flu, Financial Market Crises, Global Health Challenges, World Trade, and Global Monetary Policy on nearly every continent. The Global Society of Fellows will further the mission of GIC by helping to develop and advocate policies to bring about constructive change.
