Are you concerned about U.S. Competitiveness?

Dear Colleagues,

For the third year, the HBS Club of Cincinnati is collaborating with the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) to bring you a unique, powerful and timely program, with HBS Professor Jan Rivkin as the Keynote Speaker. We're bringing together leaders from business, government and academia to share and discuss ideas, to reflect on experiences and approaches and to strengthen the spirit of cooperation and collaboration for improved competitiveness. In fact, you may have seen last week's Cincinnati Business Courier article about Prof. Rivkin's thoughts about U.S. and regional competitiveness as a prelude to his October 23d presentation.

Jan is one of the world's authorities on the competitiveness and economic development of countries, states and regions. He will discuss the long-term competitiveness prospects of America's economy, followed by a highly interactive exchange regarding regional competitiveness, particularly in the "traded" economy.

I encourage you to join me at this important event as we learn more about the prospects for our economy and prescriptive solutions that can help sharpen o u r competitive edge and increase our prosperity, on all levels—enterprise, region and nation.

To honor our nation's defenders, veterans and active members of the military receive a 25% discount on registration.  Please enter the code:  MGF-VETS in the clearly marked box for discounts.

If you need any assistance registering for the event, please contact ACG's Chapter Director, Marcie Taylor, at (513) 861-2242 or mtaylor@acg.org .

Is the U.S. Made for Trade?

"If we do not lead on trade while others move ahead, we'll find ourselves with less market access, less competitiveness.  And very importantly, rather than shooting a starting gun for a race to the top, we'll find ourselves in a race to the bottom that we cannot win and should not run.  That cannot be in the interest of American workers and American firms." 

Remarks by Ambassador Michael Froman at the HSBC 'Made for Trade' Event

On Thursday October 23, 2014, Professor Jan Rivkin, the co-chair of the Project on U.S. Competitiveness with Professor Michael Porter, will present the long-term competitiveness prospects of America's economy with a national perspective. His discussion will answer important questions such as:

  • Do we have a competitiveness problem?
  • How did we get here?
  • What are possible priorities for business leaders and federal policymakers?

Prof. Rivkin will draw on new data, survey findings and case studies from Harvard Business School's multi-year, multi-faculty project to assess, and catalyze action to improve, U.S. competitiveness.

Steve Baker of Ft. Washington Capital Partners will moderate a panel of regional leaders in discussing the Ohio regional competitiveness ecosystem. The panelists (listed below) are leaders from business, venture capital and government who are stakeholders responsible for the building blocks that Professor Rivkin will outline in his competitiveness presentation.

  • Joseph Gardner - CEO of Aerpio Therapeutics
  • Mark Anderson - CEO of Pro Mach, Inc.
  • Dan Tobergte - CEO of Tri-ED
  • Jeremy Eberlein - Managing Director of Fifth Third Securities

Harvard Book Club

7:30 p.m. at the Bronte Bistro in Joseph Beth Bookstore
2692 Madison Road  Cincinnati, OH 45208

The next Harvard Club of Cincinnati Book Club meeting is set for Thursday, November 6, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. at the Bronte Cafe in the Joseph Beth Bookstore.

The selected book for our November 6th meeting is "My Beloved World," by Sonia Sotomayor.

Review:

When Sotomayor joined the U.S. Supreme Court in 2009, she made history as the first Hispanic on the high court.  She’d also achieved the highest dream of a Puerto Rican girl growing up in a Bronx housing project longing to someday become a judge.  In this amazingly candid memoir, Sotomayor recalls a tumultuous childhood: alcoholic father, emotionally distant mother, aggravating little brother, and a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins, all overseen by her loving, domineering paternal grandmother.  When she was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes at eight years of age, she knew she had to learn to give herself the insulin shots.  That determination saw her through Catholic high school, Princeton, and Yale Law School, at each step struggling to reconcile the poverty of her childhood with the privileges she was beginning to enjoy.  No rabble-rouser, she nonetheless was active in student groups supporting minorities.  At Yale, she learned how to think about jurisprudence, but readers looking for clues to her judicial thinking will be disappointed as she deliberately demurs.  She recounts complicated feelings toward her parents and her failed marriage as she advanced to the DA’s office, private practice, the district court, and, triumphantly, the Supreme Court.  Sotomayor offers an intimate and honest look at her extraordinary life and the support and blessings that propelled her forward.
