World Business Forum

It's no secret global commerce is stuck in the doldrums. Worldwide, economies are expected to average 3.5% growth over the next few years, compared with the 4.7% clip enjoyed from 2003 to 2008. Developed economies will do well to muster 2%. So you might think a conference obsessed with global trends would be something of a downer, but if anyone can find an upside it's the 4,000 VP-and-above business leaders and all-star speakers converging at the WBF in New York to talk about the future of business. Case in point: Joseph Stiglitz waxes economic over coffee, Al Gore discusses sustainable capitalism before lunch, and James Cameron dishes creativity in the evening. And that's just on Wednesday.
