    Moises Naim Keynote Topics

    Moises Naim explains the various factors, including populist movements, societal polarization, and post-truth ideologies, that are leading to the accumulation of power in certain areas and the erosion of it in others. He examines how these elements, though not new in themselves, are being utilized by autocrats to undermine democratic societies in unprecedented ways. Moises argues that while the concept of power remains unchanged, the methods used to acquire and wield it have undergone a transformation. Through his analysis, Naím addresses the crucial questions of why power is becoming increasingly centralized in some places and decentralized in others and ultimately, what the future holds for freedom.

    For many years, Moises Naim has held the position of Global Observer for various newspapers and has extensively covered the major crises and minor transformations shaping the unpredictable world of the 21st century. He has written on topics such as the rise and setbacks of China, the limitations of powerful nations, the global economic recession and subsequent recovery, the challenges facing an aging and divided Europe, and the reversal of societal norms.

    The distribution of power is changing, with shifts occurring from West to East, North to South, from traditional centers of authority to grassroots movements, and from established organizations to agile start-ups. Additionally, the power held by those in authority is becoming weaker and more precarious.

    Moises Naim, a renowned journalist and former editor of Foreign Policy, examines the competition between dominant forces and the new, emerging powers in various fields. Through in-depth research, Naím explores the positive and negative effects of these changes, including the overthrow of dictators, the breaking of monopolies, and the creation of new opportunities, but also the potential for chaos and inefficiency. He provides examples from a range of areas, including politics, business, religion, education, and military affairs, to demonstrate the ways in which power dynamics are shifting. Naím's analysis offers a fresh perspective on the decline of traditional power structures and the implications this has for individuals and society as a whole.

    Moises explains the evolution of competition policy in the region, providing case studies from countries such as Argentina, Chile, Venezuela, Mexico, and Columbia. He presents the global perspective on competition policy, including the antitrust experience in the US, European Economic Community competition policy, and the competition policies among Mercosur countries.
