Recent reversals in power dynamics are the foundation for a lively discussion of US energy policy in a rapidly changing world.  James Clad served as US Deputy Assistant Secretary for Defense for Asia and as senior counselor for the Overseas Private Investment Corporation and the Agency for International Development between 2002 and 2010.  He now consults for energy and investment firms.  He will trace some of the political impact of recent reversals in power dynamics as former leading energy producers like Russia and Saudi Arabia are surpassed by the U.S. He’ll also discuss projections for further upsets based on estimated untapped fuel sources in Asia and South America.

Tickets may be purchased online at ArtsPartners.
