Economist Portia Antonia Alexis To Speak At World Economic Forum 2020
she also worked in the field of investment banking at Bank of America and at Merrill Lynch, where she was an analyst which dealt with Mergers and Acquisitions.

One of the greatest challenges in today’s time is the critical economic problems. They are not only on a national level but on a global level. To deal with all the economic issues, we have London’s Portia Antonia Alexis who is a global economic influencer, an author, a media commentator and a campaigner with expertise in analysing the solutions of income inequality. Since her childhood, she wanted to become an equestrian or a ballet teacher but later she fell in love with Mathematics. With being an active member of the Department of Economics, The London School of Economics and Political Science, she is also a columnist and writes economic columns for Forbes magazine. As a business analyst, she formerly worked at McKinsey & Company and Newton Asset Management.

 

Besides this, she also worked in the field of investment banking at Bank of America and at Merrill Lynch, where she was an analyst which dealt with Mergers and Acquisitions. Her current research is on economic mobility and income inequality. A special term which she calls ‘people economics’, Portia is putting her best foot forward to tell people their stories by using mathematical economical methods. Some of her notable works are Crash Course: Economics (2015), The Academic Agent (2017), Generation Wealth (2018) and many more. In this field, the economic influencer feels that the life of a woman becomes hectic maintaining the work-life balance and the personal space. Being an economic educator to thousands of people today, Portia also revealed how a CEO can approach sustainability and build social conscience.

 

According to her, the most important thumb rule of a CEO is they should not run out of money. “The challenge of the leader is to better understand what can facilitate or hinder change, so to improve its management taking into account the complexity in which the organization doughnuts our cognitive complexity and the set of values that condition us. Beyond his skills, knowledge and expertise, an organization will go as far as the beliefs of its leader. The challenges of innovation and the complexity of evolution call for collective work, feeding on the intelligence of each and the wealth of the collective. If the leaders of companies that had failed in the past had solicited more and put to use the ideas of their employees and collaborators, they would have possibly avoided the sinking”, she said. Portia Antonia Alexis who is sharing her knowledge about economics is truly one of the best economists and educators across the globe today. Don't you agree?
