For the second consecutive year, Mike was invited to speak at The Russia Forum in Moscow. In a discussion with economist Nouriel Roubini, Mike spoke about the need for nations to invest in their human capital, and identified common misconceptions about real estate, corporate structure and sovereign debt, and about the successes and opportunities of debt markets. In a separate discussion on philanthropy, Mike described his vision of "venture philanthropy," which goes beyond just giving money to becoming personally involved by helping create strategic uses of capital, requiring collaboration among funded institutions, and investing in young medical researchers to get the best return on investment.
