Episode 08 20200313 Shikata, Vogel
Welcome to the Hale Report at EconVue’s studio in Chicago. Today is Friday, March 13th 2020 and we will be having a conversation with two renowned experts in their fields. Ezra Vogel is professor emeritus at Harvard University, a scholar of both Japan and China, and Noriyuki Shikata is a career diplomat who has served at the Japanese Embassy in Beijing. He is conducting research at Harvard this year, so both of our guests are joining us from Cambridge. Mr Shikata has also studied under Professor Vogel, so they have known each other for quite some time. We will be posting their bios on our website, Econvue.com as well as links to Prof. Vogel’s latest book about the history of the relationship between China and Japan, Facing History-very relevant right now.
Both Professor Vogel and Ambassador Shikata had been scheduled to be in Chicago tonight, to address the 90th anniversary Gala of the Japan America Society of Chicago. Circumstances that are well known to all intervened, and although the Gala will be rescheduled for later in the year, we thought this would be a good time to go virtual and discuss the importance of the friendship between our two countries.
Episode 07 20191121 Michele Wucker
Today's guest is a fellow Chicagoan, best-selling author Michele Wucker. Her thought-provoking book, the Gray Rhino, was published in 2016 by St Martin’s Press. Michele’s key insight is that even when we see the future charging at us, we often fail to act.
Episode 06 20191001 David Johnson
Our guest is a longtime friend and expert contributor to EconVue, David W. Johnson. He is CEO of 4sight Health and author of a new book, The Customer Revolution in Healthcare just published by McGraw Hill. He discusses how aligning economic incentives with patient needs will deliver better outcomes at lower costs with superior customer service. The market will be won by disruptive, bottom-up, and customer-centric, tech-saavy competitors who will deliver kinder, smarter, and cheaper health care. This is a subject absolutely everyone has a stake in, and Johnson explains in his interview not just what is broken, but how it can be fixed.
Episode 02 20190628 Jim Bianco
Our podcast this week features an interview with James Bianco , market-savvy macro-economic analyst and head of Bianco Research here in Chicago. He shares his thoughts about the Fed, markets, the long-lost world of stock picking, and the role of cryptocurrencies as a new monetary regime unfolds.
Episode 03 20190712 Dali Yang
It was a great honor and pleasure to interview renowned political scientist Professor Dali Yang of the University of Chicago for our most recent Hale Report. His thoughtful and well-researched views on modern China’s political economy are a welcome summertime antidote to current turbulence in the US-China relationship. His books are all classics in their field, and you can find his papers as well on his website, daliyang.org. If you have never read anything he has written about China’s governance transformation, as well as the future of its youngest citizens, you are missing a critical guidepost to understanding the world’s second largest economy.
