Milken Institute Gives Rubenstein Two Slots

Carlyle Group co-founder David Rubenstein will speak on two different panels at the annual Milken Global Conference, which runs from April 28 to May 1.

Maria Bartiromo will moderate Rubenstein's Panel #1 on April 30, 2012.

8:00 AM - 9:15 AM

Big Goals, New Strategies and the Future of High-Level Philanthropy

Yuri Milner, Founder, DST Global
David Rubenstein, Co-Founder and Co-CEO, The Carlyle Group
Tom Steyer, Co-Founding Director, Center for the Next Generation; former Managing Partner, Farallon Capital

Moderator:   Maria Bartiromo, Anchor, CNBC

Philanthropy is changing around the world. From sharpening missions to increasing focus on execution, measurement, outcomes and impact, a social investment revolution is underway. With government budget crises and retrenchment in social services, attention is shifting to the private sector and the innovations and solutions that will drive philanthropy's future. Yet even the most successful philanthropists may lack the financial resources necessary to accomplish audacious goals. How are they tackling the great challenges? How do they leverage their resources to drive change? What are the impediments? Is collaboration achieving results? A group of global change agents who are taking philanthropy to the next level discuss their goals, frustrations and successes, and how they see philanthropy's next phase. 

Rubenstein will interview other guests on Panel #2 that same day.

2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
A Conversation With Gary Becker, David Rubenstein and Robert Rubin

Gary Becker, Nobel Laureate; Professor of Economics and Sociology, University of Chicago

Robert Rubin, Co-Chairman, Council on Foreign Relations; former U.S. Treasury Secretary

Moderator:   David Rubenstein, Co-Founder and Co-CEO, The Carlyle Group

In this session, Carlyle Group co-founder David Rubenstein interviews former U.S. Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin and Nobel laureate economist Gary Becker about global economic trends, public finance and the capital markets. Join us for a multifaceted discussion among three renowned leaders of finance.

Milken, always the promoter, framed the event as:

"Where the World Connects": Annual Milken Institute Global Conference Brings Tony Blair, Bill Gates, Al Gore and Other Leaders to Los Angeles.

Now that's a PEU headliner list.

Update 4-26-13:  Maria promoted her Milken slots on CNBC, including the Rubenstein one.  

Update 5-10-13:  According to one presenter at Milken (and recorded by one viewer), workers are "screwed"  It's the PEU way in the global race to the bottom on worker pay/benefits, taxes and regulation.
