With experience at the National Counterterrorism Center, Dr. Grimm provided a typology of terrorism and examined potential counterterrorism approaches. Second, Professor George Shambaugh discussed the nature of the global economy– examining both international trade and international finance. Attempting to dispel a number of myths about the global economy, Dr. Shambaugh nonetheless issued the warning: Cave!
