IPO-VID Guest: Steve Zwick

Tuesday, November 23rd: 1800 UK, 1900 CET, 1300 EST

“The Market View From COP26”

A former futures broker and trader in Chicago, nowadays Steve Zwick writes about the economics of sustainable development and the interplay between land-use and climate change — two subjects he developed a fascination for in a 30-year career that brought him from Chicago’s trading pits and led to subsistence farms in rural parts of Kenya, Vietnam, and Brazil.

As a journalist, he has worked for publications as diverse as the Chicago Reader, Fortune and Time Magazines. He has been twice short-listed for the World Leadership Forum’s prestigious Business Journalist of the Year Award. He also produced radio features for Germany’s Deutsche Welle Radio and National Public Radio in the United States.
