The research is in, and the results conclusive: Women are a force for prosperity.  When women are included in economies, growth happens. As chair of Fortune Most Powerful Women International, and host of the “Smart Women, Smart Power” series at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Nina Easton is ideal positioned to discuss women as economic engines, contributing to GDP—and thereby poverty reduction for all. She shows why investment in girls’ education is the highest-return investment available in the developing world—a fact that both smart foreign aid and corporations are discovering.  As a Fortune columnist, has written about this trend from places like Dubai, and has addressed the Nobel Peace Prize Forum and others on the topic. She interviewed the Secretary of State on-stage, in front of world leaders and top CEO’s, at the 2011 APEC Summit.

Mickey Edwards was a featured speaker at an international humanities conference in Italy and has been a frequent critic of the failure of American schools and universities to adequately teach civics, critical thinking, and the various elements of a humanities curriculum. Edwards argues that our schools, including the best of them, have essentially been turned into vo-tech schools, training Americans for employment—and to be part of the nation’s economic machinery—but not to be thoughtful, knowledgeable citizens, capable of meeting their constitutional responsibilities as final arbiters of government policy.
