Jean-Pierre Rosso: A rise in the eastern market. Well, let me tell you that all the global companies are aggressively pursuing those markets. So there is nothing that needs to be done. Business is taking care of this, all those, those companies are all over the map and addressing the opportunities there, around in those need else any thing else that needs to be done.

Jean-Pierre Rosso: Well, the rise of China is I think is like to rise of all the developing countries is that just, the whole the world population is moving up and leaving standards and that is good, I mean you can be benefit. The good thing about China is that they are educating people, they work hard, and they are smart and they are going to contribute to the world. This is not necessarily exactly the case, of all emerging markets but China is the shining example of a country moving forward and if you are smart, will this will be to our advantage as well.

Question: How much longer can the U.S. compete?

There is no reason that trying to, US would not compete with China, first of all on, if you talk business, US business is overwhelmingly present in China and will continue to be those global companies will be more and more global, more and more competitive and whether you called is the US there would be, the world is changing, so US based companies and they may have a lot more of their activities outside of the US which is already happening for many companies that they have more of their revenue is outside of US than in the US, but that is going  to continue to be the case.

Education vs. learning: How semantics can trigger a mind shift

The word "learning" opens up space for more people, places, and ideas.

Future of Learning
  • The terms 'education' and 'learning' are often used interchangeably, but there is a cultural connotation to the former that can be limiting. Education naturally links to schooling, which is only one form of learning.
  • Gregg Behr, founder and co-chair of Remake Learning, believes that this small word shift opens up the possibilities in terms of how and where learning can happen. It also becomes a more inclusive practice, welcoming in a larger, more diverse group of thinkers.
  • Post-COVID, the way we think about what learning looks like will inevitably change, so it's crucial to adjust and begin building the necessary support systems today.
