Speaking and Writing
David Steven Jacoby’s speeches directly address the defining issues of our time. Armed with extensive first-hand experiences from around the world and an encyclopedic knowledge of facts, he challenges embedded thinking about growth and progress, convenience, comfort, and quality of life, and distills the insights into an informed and compelling prescription for government policy, business management, and consumer engagement. With over 30 years of consulting experience in over 50 countries, nobody else has the depth of international experience from a first-hand point of view and can speak with authority on business, and economics in various parts of the world, and provide so many personal perspectives and anecdotes about the impact of industrial development on economic growth and society.
He has delivered over 300 speeches and publications on global supply chains, trade, growth, the environmental and social impact of industry, and economic topics.
His five books chronicle his intellectual journey: Trump, Trade and the End of Globalization (Praeger, 2018); From Bogota to Beijing: Development and Life After Globalization (Lexington Press, 2017); The High Cost of Low Prices: A Roadmap to Sustainable Prosperity (Business Expert Press, 2017); Optimal Supply Chain Management in Oil, Gas and Power Generation (PennWell, 2011); and The Guide to Supply Chain Management (Economist, 2009).
