G-ZERO TO HERO: GLOBAL ECONOMIC GOVERNANCE
Dan Drezner, Professor of International Politics, The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University; Contributing Editor, Foreign Policy; Blogger, ForeignPolicy.com;

Trashing global economic governance has become a popular sport in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. Although bemoaned for its dysfunction and lack of leadership, Dan Drezner argues the global economic governance system has worked better than one might think. Global trade and investment levels have recovered from the 2008 plunge while existing global governance structures, particularly in finance, have revamped themselves to accommodate shifts in the distribution of power. Some allege that we’ve moved from the G7 and G20 to a G-Zero world, bereft of cooperative governance. With international financial institutions passing the stress tests, is the leaderless G-Zero world a myth?

Dan Drezner is a professor of international politics at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.

He has previously taught at the University of Chicago and the University of Colorado at Boulder. Drezner has received fellowships from the German Marshall Fund of the United States, the Council on Foreign Relations, and Harvard University. He has previously held positions with Civic Education Project, the RAND Corporation, and the Treasury Department. Drezner is the author of Theories of International Politics and Zombies, published in 2011. He received his BA from Williams College and his MA and PhD from Stanford University.
