The Middle East--What's Next? - Islamic Finance - Internet Privacy and Employment Issues - Developing the Next Generation of Rainmakers
June 2, 2011
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
Join us this week on Capital Thinking with host Kevin O'Neill as former U.S. Ambassador to Egypt, Frank Wisner, shares his views on the recent developments in the Middle East and offers his assessment of potential next steps for the U.S. in the region. Next, we turn to John Vogel to discuss economic issues in the Middle East and take a look at Islamic finance, a banking system different than that of the West's conventional banking method, and how it has prevailed and will likely continue to further economic developments in the region. Then, we kick off the show's second half by speaking with Deborah Lodge and Doug Mishkin, experienced intellectual property and employment attorneys, respectively, about the debate regarding an employer's right to monitor employees' online activities. Finally, we are joined by Dr. Cindy Pladziewicz, a lawyer and a clinical psychologist, who will offer her thoughts on development opportunities for young professionals and useful tools to discover their hidden potential.
