War Games with John Hulsman.
War game simulations immerse participants in an issue, allowing them to challenge accepted ideas in an inclusive, participatory way. These powerful strategy tools are used by executives, lawmakers in Washington D.C., and others to make projections about the future. Some organizations use war games to develop short-term trading ideas or to test a longer-term investment thesis.
Attendees will be divided into groups, each one representing a country and making decisions on its behalf. Organizers will distribute briefing packs ahead of time with background information to help prepare for the session.
– Analyze global tensions in depth, examining their effects on other economies around the world
