Bloomberg and The Washington Post to Host GOP Debate

WASHINGTON, DC — Bloomberg and The Washington Post will host a Republican presidential candidate debate on Oct. 11 at Dartmouth College that focuses on the issues voters say they care about most: jobs, deficits, taxes and the economy.

Partnering with Bloomberg News and The Washington Post will be WBIN, the New Hampshire television station, which will broadcast the debate statewide. Bloomberg Television will broadcast the debate globally, and washingtonpostlive.com, which has 16 million viewers, will stream the event in real time.

The Bloomberg-Washington Post debate will be the first of the 2012 campaign devoted to the single subject of the U.S. economy. Three years after the most severe downturn in the economy since the Great Depression, the candidates will debate over federal spending, deficits and debt, Social Security, Medicare, financial regulatory reform, taxes and the top issue in national polls: jobs.

Bloomberg News and The Washington Post have a syndication partnership that distributes stories to almost 500 newspapers worldwide. The Bloomberg Terminal reaches more than 300,000 global financial professionals, Bloomberg.com reaches nearly 12 million users each month, and Bloomberg Businessweek and BloombergBusinessweek.com reach 10 million readers.

Washington Post Live, the events division of The Washington Post, will organize the debate for The Washington Post.

Sarah Palin Makes First Visit to S. Korea

Maeil Business Newspaper

Sarah Palin, former Governor of Alaska and the Republican Party’s frontline female politician, will be making her very first visit to South Korea to attend the 2011 World Knowledge Forum (WKF 2011)

Palin first entered mainstream politics when she was named the Republican Party nominee for Vice President in the 2008 presidential election. Ever since, Palin has been the figurehead of grassroots conservative politics also known as the Tea Party Movement, which has been opening new scopes in US politics.During the WKF, Sarah Palin will give a US leadership perspective on how to lead the world out of the latest crisis.

The 2011 WKF will be celebrating its 12th session this year under the theme of ‘New Crisis.’ Our distinguished guests – 250 global leaders from 40 countries around the world – will shine new light and shed insights on how to successfully navigate through the drastically altered global management environment following the global financial crisis.

Our list of illustrious speakers include current and former public officials – such as former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown and European Commissioner for Trade Karel de Gucht – as well as the world-famous academics in the likes of Michael Sandel, Amy Chua, and Strobe Talbott. Our prominent mega business speakers also include Toshiba CEO Atsutoshi Nishida and Rio Tinto CEO Tom Albanese.
