Noon-1:00pm, https://meeting.austin.utexas.edu/careerwebinar/
On his first full work day, Donald Trump formally cancelled the Trans-Pacific Partnership, as he had promised during his campaign. The 12 nation trade pact, negotiated under the Obama administration, and strongly backed by Obama at the end of his tenure, officially became a dead deal. But did it? Could a “Son of TPP” resurface, and if so, what sort of scenario might lead to a TPP resurrection? And if the deal is truly dead, what other scenarios might unfold? In this webinar we’ll explore what may happen in terms of future multilateral trade arrangements involving TPP participants, and what others, including China, may be involved in new negotiations.

Join Gerber for a continuation of her last webinar held just over a year ago about the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Listen to a recording of Gerber’s last webinar.

11:30am-1:00pm, AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center, Room 203, 1900 University Ave. Austin, TX 78705
Risk is inherent to any business, but not all types of risk are fully understood and they can be very difficult to properly quantify and manage. Furthermore, some industries are inherently riskier than others. The question becomes: How can you make a rational economic decision when you don’t fully understand the nature of the risks you face or have all of the tools necessary to quantify, analyze and address them?

In this talk by McCombs' Distinguished Senior Lecturer Britt Freund and UT Bureau of Economic Geology’s Chief Energy Economist Michelle Foss, we’ll explore the nature of risk analysis and discuss strategies for effectively addressing certain types of risk, using the oil and gas industry as an example. Register now! 

What you will learn:

• How do people make difficult decisions when risks are unknown?
• Can you always make a rational economic decision if you properly consider all of the risks?
• What biases affect decision analysis?
• How does a corporation’s culture affect how people make decisions?
• When analyzing information, what is the threshold of evidence necessary to make a decision or override a previous one?
• Can you afford to protect against tail risk and at what level?
