Corporate Program

The Evolution of International Trade
with Richard W. Fisher, President and Chief Executive Officer, The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

Global demand for services is likely to rise rapidly as consumers in fast-growing nations shift their spending from goods to services and as Internet Age technologies continue to reduce the constraints of time and space. Richard Fisher will explore America's shift from dominance in industrial to services trade, and explain why the U.S. excels in highly-valued services and identify our strongest services exports.

Richard W. Fisher has been president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas since 2005. This year, Mr. Fisher serves as a voting member of the Federal Open Market Committee, the Federal Reserve's principal monetary policymaking group.

Mr. Fisher is former vice chairman of Kissinger McLarty Associates, a strategic advisory firm chaired by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. In 1987, Mr. Fisher created Fisher Capital Management and a separate funds-management firm, Fisher Ewing Partners. From 1997 to 2001, Mr. Fisher was deputy U.S. trade representative with the rank of ambassador. He oversaw the implementation of NAFTA, negotiations for the Free Trade Area of the Americas, and various agreements with Vietnam, Korea, Japan, Chile and Singapore.

This luncheon is cosponsored by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and the CFA Society of Chicago.
