David Rothkopf, Managing Director and Member of the Board of Directors for Kissinger Associates, the international consulting firm chaired by former U.S. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger, taught "Interdisciplinary Perspectives: Big emerging markets." It was the second time Rothkopf taught the course, which focused on U.S. policy making in the realm of emerging markets. In the spring semester, he will teach the follow-up course, "Faultline Issues in U.S.-Emerging Markets Relations," which will deal with issues of conflict between U.S. interests and those of other countries as they pertain to emerging markets. Rothkopf just finished a book on the economic side of peacekeeping for the Carnegie Endowment For International Peace -- where he is a visiting fellow -- called, "The Price of Peace." "The book bases itself on the recent experiences in Haiti, the Middle East, and Bosnia," he said. Rothkopf was also Deputy Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade in the first Clinton Administration.
