There are a tremendous number of global risks ranging from energy shortages to climate change, influenza, malaria and earthquakes. We shall explore how commerce plays the key role in helping us manage these global risks. We shall also explore how creative thinking around tried economic concepts is leading to innovative solutions to global risks. In most cases 'more commerce', not less, is the better answer, and along the way we can explain the difference between resilience and robustness. In short, do you really, really, really believe in markets? And why you should!
